What is Kanopy?

Kanopy is an online streaming service, like Netflix or Hulu, that provides access to excellent movies (many from the Criterion Collection), independent films, foreign language content, and award-winning documentaries. 

How to use Kanopy

Kanopy has an app for ios and android based devices. Download Kanopy from the Apple App Store or Google Play store. You must first download the app from the store. Alternately, you can access Kanopy from a computer by clicking here. Patrons get 10 plays per month (each for 72 hours) and your number of plays resets on the 1st of every month.

Using the App

1) Create a Kanopy account Tap the icon located in the top left corner to open the side menu. At the very bottom, tap on "Log In". At the bottom of the screen, tap on "I don't have an account". You can use your email, Facebook, or Google account to sign up.

2) Add your library

Tap the link to add your library. In the search box of the page that opens, start entering the name of your academic or public library and tap on its name in the list that appears.

3) Connect your account with your library membership

After adding your library, the last step is to authenticate yourself as a member of that library. You will be prompted to enter your library card number and password or PIN.


Once you have successfully created your account as outlined above, you will be able to play videos from the Kanopy catalog. In the player, tap the screen to bring up the player's user interface. At the bottom of the screen you will see the Play/pause button, the quick rewind button, the progress bar and the remaining play time clock. To fast forward, please tap and drag the progress indicator on the progress bar.

If you need further assistance or instructions for using the desktop version of Kanopy, please visit the Kanopy help site or contact the library for assistance.
