Q. Can the library purchase a streaming video I need through Kanopy?


We are only able to purchase access to streaming films in Kanopy that were first heavily used in Films on Demand, but are no longer available through that platform.

Please note that Kanopy's Terms of Service do not allow for streaming in the physical classroom; though films can be linked in Blackboard courses for students to view individually. Please contact the FCC Copyright Compliance Officer for questions about Terms of Service at copyright@frederick.edu.

If you are a faculty member and have received notice from us about losing access to a Films on Demand title you use in your course, please contact the library so that we can work on finding you a suitable replacement. 

Kanopy is available through the Frederick County Public Library.
