How do I find videos from the library?


If you are looking for a specific video, you can always start by searching the title in OneSearch:



You can also find videos on most subjects, including some popular entertainment, through these York Library databases:

Kanopy Streaming

  • York Library has a limited selection of titles available via Kanopy, which can be renewed annually.
  • If there's a title you need for a course you are teaching, please search in Kanopy and use the request feature to get access to the film. We will follow up on all requests to make sure we purchase the film streaming rights for the length of time that you require.


Note: Most links will require you to sign in from off-campus using your CUNY login.
