Streaming service update

September 17, 2019
General

If you use our Kanopy film streaming service, which offers many documentaries and independent films, you'll want to know about our recent shift to a mediated access model. When you select a film that's not already licensed by the library, you'll be prompted to submit a request form. Anybody can submit a request, though we'll prioritize those from instructors for course-related films. 

This new model will allow us to control costs, and ensures that we can continue to offer this service. 

As always, anybody can borrow DVDs for personal use or classroom screenings, and we can add to this collection upon request. We also offer several other streaming services. If you have questions or requests about streaming, or about our video collection and policies, contact Jeffrey Pearson, jwpearso@umich.edu, at the Askwith Media Library.
