Media Inquiries


Kanopy is a pay-per-use streaming video database, whose pricing model is based on the number of views per-title. Once a title has been viewed four times, Sarah Lawrence is charged an annual licensing fee for that title.

While all the streaming films in Kanopy are now available for viewing, if the cost starts to exceed our budget we will have to transition to mediated access mode. This will mean that if you want to watch a film in Kanopy not already licensed by the college, you'll have to fill out the purchase request form in Kanopy. Priority will be given to faculty requests for films to be viewed for classwork, and films needed for academic research that are not owned by the library in DVD format or readily available through Interlibrary Loan.

We encourage you to explore the Kanopy films featured in the lists below, which are currently licensed by Sarah Lawrence, and can be watched at no additional cost to the college.
