Please check BobCat, the library catalog, to see if we already have this title available in The New School library consortium.  In many cases, we already have access to the film on DVD or in streaming format on a different platform than Kanopy, or the film is available at NYU's Avery Fisher Center and can be viewed by New School community members.

For titles that are not in the library Consortium, you can sign up for an NYPL library card and access over 30,000 films through your Kanopy account created with your NYPL card.  

If the film is not available either in the Consortium or at NYPL, then please complete the Request a Purchase form on the library website (or if the film is for a class, faculty may request that it be placed on Reserve using the Course Reserves tab within Canvas). Please also note if you have any format preferences (DVD vs. streaming) and how long you expect to use it so that we can obtain the proper license for it.
