Kanopy change is now Live!

As we mentioned in our “Kanopy changes to come!” post on January 21, 2020, we have implemented the change and gone to a mediated model. This means that any Kanopy film that does NOT have a current license, as found in the Research @UWW search, will produce a pop-up request form that needs to completed. This will then be sent to Nancy Bennett, Electronic Resources Librarian, for review and verification that we do not have the film accessible elsewhere. If the film is approved, Nancy will contact Kanopy to have the video activated. According to Kanopy, this activation will take up to 24 hours to complete!

Please plan ahead for any film that you wish to show in your classes and remember to check out all our other video resources.
