Klinck Memorial Library Policies: Kanopy Requests

Kanopy Title Request Policy

Only faculty members at Concordia University Chicago are able to request Kanopy titles.


Due to budget restrictions, the Library only allows up to 4 videos to be requested per faculty per fiscal. Please note that the Library provides access to numerous film collections that are readily available, and if the Kanopy request is similar to content that is already owned, a librarian will reach out to you with other options before filling the Kanopy request. Exceptions for purchases may occur depending on available funds at the end of the fiscal year.


To request a Kanopy title, email: with the following information:

  • Kanopy Title
  • Course number & name
  • Number of students
  • Would you like this renewed annually? Yes or no.


Videos purchased through Kanopy are only available for one year due to license agreements. If you would like to renew access to a video you have requested, please inform the Library before the video expires or it will no longer be accessible after one year of the purchase date.

To learn more about other media resources that the Library has to offer, please email us: or call 708-209-3050
