The library is currently trialing a database through March 6th, 2015 Kanopy Streaming Video. Find it from the direct link or go to the All Kirkwood Databases page and click on the Kanopy logo on the left hand side. No password is necessary from on or off campus.
We’ve been investigating adding a streaming video database to the resources the library offers. This is the third one we’ve tried. A faculty member suggested we specifically try this one. This database includes Academy Award winning films as well as archival ones. There are 20,000 videos available for possible use. Look for films that you could use in the classroom and topics you are interested in. Many of these films/documentaries are full length, an hour or longer. Others are shorter. They are all cleared for classroom use. Please take a look and let us know what you think by completing a short survey no later than March 6.
Find answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the database.
Also, if short videos on nonfiction topics are what you are looking for check with our current subscriptions to online encyclopedias, available from the the Digital Encyclopedia box on our All Kirkwood Database page.
