Kanopy is a streaming video service that licenses access via libraries. Different library systems will have varying agreements with Kanopy, so the catalog of available titles may also differ depending on the individual license at a given institution. UCLA Library offers access to an academic version of Kanopy (Kanopy BASE/KBASE) for current students, staff, and faculty, including selected titles from the Criterion collection, A24, New Day, Kino Lorber, PBS, and other content providers.
Titles available in Kanopy can change over time depending on agreements with rights holders, including the addition of new titles and the removal of existing titles. Many titles are listed in the UCLA Library Catalog, but patrons are encouraged to search/browse Kanopy directly for the full range of offerings. Films on Kanopy must be viewed online, and cannot be downloaded.
The Library's online subscription resources can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the methods below.

If you still need help, you can contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org. They provide 24/7 phone support.
