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.

Due to budget constraints and the rising cost of Kanopy, some films in the Kanopy database are open for viewing, while others are mediated, which means you'll have to fill out the request form in the database to watch them. Priority will be given to faculty requests for films to be viewed for classwork, and films needed for academic research that are not readily available in DVD format through Interlibrary Loan.
