Tech Tuesday – New Database!

Ames Library has just signed up for a new database! The Kanopy streaming video database is available for use in classrooms and wherever else you need it.

KANOPY logoHere’s your chance to watch entire films or preview many interesting titles!  Kanopy offers a broad selection of over 12,000 films and documentaries, featuring such producers as Media Education Foundation, Criterion Collection, PBS, California Newsreel, HBO, Kino Lorber, and more.

Search Tips

  1. To look for an exact title or phrase, put your search terms in quotation marks (e.g. “Killing Us Softly”).
  2. Include “AND” between search terms to view results that must contain both words (not just either word).
  3. Having searched for keywords, use the filters on the left side of the search results page to narrow your search (by category, producer, year of production, etc)

The library welcomes your feedback on this resource.  Please send comments to Marcia Thomas,
