Should I request a Kanopy video?

A license to access a Kanopy is not inexpensive (the typical license costs $150 per year), therefore we encourage instructors to consider other sources as appropriate, including the library's AVON collection (which provides unlimited access to all videos at no additional cost). We are also committed to support instructional and curricular needs, including renewing licenses to specific Kanopy videos as appropriate.

How to Renew an Existing Kanopy license

If the library has already licensed a video from Kanopy, instructors using a Kanopy video as part of their courses can request the library renew the license.
