UNB Access to the Kanopy

As of June 1st, 2019, UNB Libraries will be transitioning to a mediated access model for Kanopy, a library of streaming videos covering a broad range of subjects in the arts and humanities, social sciences, education, business, film and theatre. Please note, Kanopy's pricing model for libraries is based on the number of views per-title; once a title has been viewed (in whole or in part) four times, UNB Libraries is charged an annual licensing fee of $150. As the popularity of the service has grown and more films are viewed, so have the costs skyrocketed.

We understand and respect how increasingly popular streaming media has become as an instructional resource, which is why our modified service offering will prioritize the academic use of Kanopy. Unfortunately, access for individual viewing will be discontinued. We regret having to make this change but it has become necessary to contain costs.
