The SJR State Library subscribes to 3 streaming video services: Kanopy, Films on Demand, and Swank. 

Kanopy is an award-winning video streaming service providing access to more than 30,000 independent and documentary films ─  titles of unique social and cultural value from The Criterion Collection, The Great Courses, Media Education Foundation, and thousands of independent filmmakers. It's very similar to Netflix but the content is curated for an academic environment. Kanopy lets you stream films on a computer, personal device, or TV.
