Kanopy is a streaming video service that provides an excellent selection of films. Gleeson Library only provides access to a few faculty requested films through Kanopy because it is a very expensive service. However, many public libraries provide access to Kanopy, so if you have a local public library card, you can see if your library carries Kanopy and use the streaming service through them.

San Francisco Public Library does carry Kanopy. All residents of San Francisco can apply for a San Francisco Library Public Library Card.
