What is Kanopy and how do I get started using the service?

Kanopy is an on-demand video streaming service that offers independent, international, classic and documentary films from popular collections such as Criterion, the Great Courses, PBS and more.

To get started with Kanopy:

  • Click on https://ccclib.kanopy.com/
  • Click on “Add Library Card” and sign in with your Library card number and your last name as the password. You will be asked to create a Kanopy account using Facebook, Google or an email address.
  • Once you create your account and verify your email address, sign in with your Library card number and last name (instead of PIN).

You can watch a maximum of eight videos per month. Keep in mind, once you press play on a video, it will be deducted from the video limit for the month even if you don't finish it. You will have three days to view that video as many times as you like. If you watch the same video after the three days have passed, it will count as another video for your month.
