Kanopy Streaming Video

Update - 10/30/2018: Kanopy streaming video has been available to the NIU community for almost a year. We have analyzed the usage of this resource and will be making some adjustments to the films that we offer. When you search a film title, you may be shown a request form. At this time, we will only be fulfilling film requests from faculty for course-related use. Students that encounter a request form for a film that is needed for course-related use should ask their instructor to make the request on their behalf.

The Libraries remain committed to providing video resources to support campus teaching and learning.

Kanopy Available through NIU Libraries

The on-demand, streaming service Kanopy is now available through NIU Libraries and provides access to thousands of documentaries, feature and independent films, and training videos from a variety of subject areas, including the arts, business, education, health, social sciences, and much more. Showcasing award winners, hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema, Kanopy is accessible from both on and off-campus by an unlimited number of simultaneous viewers. Films can be streamed from any computer or from a mobile device by downloading the Kanopy app.
