Know Before You Go!

  • To access most of these resources, you must be logged in to the library website.
  • You can share video and audio in Zoom, including DVDs or video clips on your computer or through streaming platforms like Netflix (let us know if you need support).
  • Kanopy is a mediated database, so everything you see when you log in is something we've manually activated. There is more available, but you must request it (reach out to mcalhoun@risd.edu to discuss). We pay $120 for one year of access to each film, so our policy is to only activate films that your entire class will watch.
  • If you have a Providence Public Library (or Brooklyn/NYPL) membership, you can also access Kanopy through that account, and watch up to 8 films per month for free!
  • We regret that we cannot make DVDs available online, both due to technology restrictions and copyright law.
