If a required film for a course is unavailable in Kanopy, please reach out to your course instructor to request access. While the McDermott library will make reasonable efforts to acquire materials required for coursework, the library may not honor all requests due to budgetary reasons. Many of the films may also be available on course reserves as a physical DVD.
The library has a large selection of physical DVDs. If you have questions on obtaining a film, please feel free to contact one of the reference librarians who can assist. Films that we do not have can also often be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
In addition, Students, Faculty, and Staff also have access to streaming films on a wide variety of topics from PBS, Film Platform, and Docuseek. We encourage viewing films on these platforms.
This streaming video service includes documentaries, independent and foreign films, classics, and instructional films. It supports keyword searching as well as browsing by categories like Arts, Business, Education, Foreign Films, Global Studies & Languages, Health, Media & Communications, Movies and TV, Science, and Social Studies.
