SVSU Kanopy Video List: Home

This internal guide is for SVSU faculty, librarians and admins to review currently leased Kanopy titles and to see current video policy.

Kanopy Information

Starting August 31, 2020 Kanopy will be mediated. This means that films that are not already leased on the platform will now require you to fill out a request form. The library will approve requests of faculty on a first come first serve basis as finances and need allow. Below is a list of currently leased titles in Kanopy along with their expiration dates. This list will be updated monthly. This list shows you films the library has currently leased and thus you have immediate access to. If a film is NOT currently leased (as was mentioned above) a request form will need to be submitted within the Kanopy database to gain access to the film within a few business days.

If you are interested in other streaming media please also try Academic Video Online (AVON). It is a subscription video database with access to over 60,000 streaming videos. If neither Kanopy nor AVON has the film you need please contact your library liaison and they will try and assist you in finding a streaming copy.

Please NOTE: Titles will be added (as funds allow) shortly after the request is made. The spreadsheets on this page are update once a month to reflect the change in holdings.
