Video Streaming at Whittemore Library: Home

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


The Henry Whittemore Library offers several video streaming options, AVON, Films on Demand (World Cinema Streaming Collection) and Kanopy. The streaming video platforms provide access to a select number of films that are part of the subscription. Contact Millie Gonzalez at with questions about the resources.

Academic Video Online (AVON) and Films on Demand


Due to budget constraints, the library has a limited Kanopy subscription. If a video is available in Kanopy but not through our subscription plan, faculty can request the video only if the video will be used in class. These requests will be approved immediately. Faculty can request the film using the request form in Kanopy, or by emailing Millie Gonzalez at

If faculty would like to view films (available in Kanopy but not in our subscription plan) for research purposes, the library can facilitate the purchase of the films through their academic departments. The library is unable to process the student request at this time. We strongly recommend search the AVON film database first before requesting a film in Kanopy.

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.

Finding Films Elsewhere

Whittemore Library is a member of MLN, the Minuteman Library Network.  You can search for books, films, and other multimedia materials in Whittemore Library only or you may search the whole network.  With a Minuteman library card, you are able to request materials from any Minuteman library and may have them sent to Whittemore or any other member library for your convenience.
