Beginning in May, Northeastern University Library will be reducing full access to Kanopy videos. From April 27 through August 24, Kanopy will be a mediated library service and access will be limited to instructional use and research support for faculty and students. Films that are already triggered (licensed because of usage for one year) will appear on the site and in Scholar OneSearch, but other films will have to be requested.
If you have films you know you will use in teaching and research this summer from the Kanopy collection, please notify Erin Beach (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Amy Lewontin (email@example.com) and we will ensure that the films are activated in ample time for the summer sessions. You can also use the request form on the Kanopy site after April 27, and if you identify that the film is for class use, we will expedite the activation. Please note that this can take a day or two so be sure to build in adequate lead-time.
If you live in the Boston area and wish to use Kanopy outside of academic use, the Boston Public Library offers Kanopy for free, and one can watch four films a month, once you obtain an e-card. More information is available here.
Thanks for your understanding of this necessary cost-saving effort and please let us know if you have any questions.
