What does this message mean?
- If you are accessing Kanopy through a public library:
To ensure long-term access to patrons, your library has set up a monthly budget on Kanopy. Once this budget has been used, patrons will no longer be able to stream films until the funds have been added to the budget or it resets the following month.
- If you are accessing Kanopy through a university or college library:
Your library has chosen to limit the film collection available on Kanopy at this time. This may be due to school session breaks, budget constraints, or other limitations that allow your library to maintain access to its most needed films.
For any films that are currently unavailable, you will see a request form that you can use to ask your library for access. Please provide as much information as possible in this form - i.e. what course it is for, whether you are a student or faculty member, when you need access and why.
What if I have unused play credits? Will they roll over into next month?
Once the library’s monthly budget has been reached, patrons will no longer be able to stream films, even if there are play credits remaining. This is to ensure the library does not exceed their monthly budgets. Unused play credits do not roll over into the next month. Play credits will reset to your library’s monthly allotment on the 1st day of the next month.
