Video Streaming at Whittemore Library: Home

Help with understanding the video streaming options at the Henry Whittemore Library


In the Spring 2019 semester the Henry Whittemore Library will be offering two video streaming options, Academic Video Online and Kanopy. Patrons can watch any video on the Academic Video Online platform. Access to Kanopy is more limited, see the details below. Contact Hedda Monaghan at with any questions about either resource.

Films on Demand

The Henry Whittemore Library subscribes to the World Cinema Collection through Films on Demand. The World Cinema Collection is an excellent resource for foreign films.


What is Kanopy?

Kanopy has been billed as "Netflix" for academic libraries.

How do I access Kanopy?

Most videos in Kanopy must be requested. If a video is required for a class, faculty may request it using the request form in Kanopy, or by emailing Millie Gonzalez at To search Kanopy, use the link below. Once a video request is processed the video will be accessible to the entire campus community.

If you are planning on using a film that is currently available on Kanopy later in the semester or year, contact Millie Gonzalez to ensure the film will be available when you plan on showing or assigning it.
