This guide is used to assist City Tech users on accessing and requesting videos through the library's subscription to Kanopy.


Requesting Films for Classes

If a user clicks on a film that is not activated, they will see a page letting them know that the film is not currently available to view. 

Faculty can submit using the form or contact Prof. Junior Tidal with their video request.

Please include your department, course, and how long you intend (semester/yearly) to show the video.
