Have some time on your hands? Check out these 10 video streaming tips and recommendations from the Cal Poly Humboldt Library:

Kanopy Streaming

Spotlight: Bell Hooks: Cultural Criticism & Transformation, In Whose Honor?

Titles streamed by Kanopy are available either directly from the library catalog or from the HSU Kanopy interface linked above to the Humboldt community. Those titles for which we do not hold streaming rights could be requested by filling in a request form. This form would appear on your screen and is forwarded to a staff member for consideration. Given our limited funds, we emphasize study and research needs when making purchase decisions.

Google Media Library A to Z
