Kanopy video streaming at UCL

UCL staff and students now have access to over 26,000 films via Kanopy, an online video streaming resource. Kanopy‘s collection includes thousands of award-winning documentaries, training films and theatrical releases which can be streamed from any location on various devices.

The collection includes a number of leading producers, such as the Criterion Collection, PBS, Kino Lorber, New Day Films, The Great Courses, California Newsreel, BBC and hundreds more.

Features include: sharing films, creating clips or teaching playlists, and the capacity to embed these into the course system.

We are working to get the records loaded as soon as possible so that you can find these films via Explore but in the meantime, you can go directly to Kanopy.

This is one of a series of projects that UCL Library Services is running to directly involve users in the acquisition of content, UCL has deposited funds with Kanopy allowing for licences to the popular titles to be purchased whilst all other films can also be viewed.

Please send feedback on this resource to the  library team.
