An Introduction to Memorial Library's streaming video databases and recorded video collection


Kanopy Film Library is a streaming video resource with an emphasis on documentaries, but also includes feature-length domestic films and foreign cinema, as well as educational series. Featured producers in Kanopy's collection include the Criterion Collection, PBS, HBO, The Great Courses, the Media Education Foundation, First Run Features, BBC, and many more. Films can be watched from anywhere, anytime by Berry students, faculty & staff. You may also download the mobile app onto your devices and sign into a personal Kanopy account affiliated with Berry College. You would then be free to watch titles on your mobile device or stream it to a personal TV.

How Do I Share Videos?

You can share Kanopy videos with anyone with access to the Berry College network. Locate and copy the stable URL for the video by clicking the "Share" button underneath the player. 


Performance Rights & Users

Kanopy videos have a license for unlimited simultaneous users. Public Performance Rights (PPR) for non-classroom use like film club nights or student organization events are available for some films. 

The PPR search filter is located at the bottom of the filter group (see the image on the left). You can find the PPR indicator icon on a video page below the description.
