FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The New Mexico State University Library is now providing access to thousands of award-winning documentaries, training films, and feature films. The library is pleased to partner with the ASNMSU Library Student Advocacy & Advisory Committee (LSAAC) to pilot a streaming video program through Kanopy, an online video streaming service.
Kanopy is a solution to providing educational institutions with online access to more than 26,000 films from many of the leading producers, including the Criterion Collection, PBS, Kino Lorber, New Day Films, The Great Courses, California Newsreel, and hundreds more. Kanopy’s streaming interface makes it easy to watch, share, discuss and engage with films across campus. It is easy for both faculty and students to embed Kanopy in their coursework through Canvas. With Kanopy, you can share films, create clips, or teaching playlists.
Alisa Gonzalez, Education and Social Sciences Librarian, said that “Using documentaries and films in online classes has been problematic in the past. Kanopy bridges the gap between publisher, instructor, and student.” Susan Beck, Department Head of Access Services states “Kanopy is a wonderful, much-needed video streaming service. The entire NMSU community will benefit from its rich offerings.”
Kanopy can be accessed through our A-Z Databases page and search for “Kanopy”. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact NMSU Library Acquisitions Librarian, John Sandstrom, 575-646-8093.
