Embedding links in Nexus

We purchase streaming licenses that allow you to share links to movies via Nexus or allow streaming for classroom / educational use.

Once you have found the streaming video you want to use in class, it's best to use the "permalink" feature that many videos have. This ensures that your link will work on or off campus.

  • Academic Videos Online: use "All Options" then click the "Document URL" link at the top of the screen to copy the link.
  • Docuseek: choose "My Account" at the top of the screen, then find your movie on the list. Click "Link/Embed" for options.
  • Kanopy: use the "Share" button to get the URL to the movie.

Kanopy mediated requests

We have access to thousands of films in Kanopy, but there may be some that are unavailable or only accessible upon request. These are called mediated requests

  1. If you can't find your film in Kanopy, check our other streaming services or use Primo to see if the video is available on DVD. For help, contact Robyn Reed.
  2. If your film is available in Kanopy but "request access" is highlighted, simply click the link to request access. An email will go to us and we will contact you as soon as your movie is available.
