Kanopy Service is Limited to Current Licenses
February 14, 2019 (updated February 22, 2019)

At the present time, Kanopy viewing is limited to those titles that Cooper has already paid to license for one year. Follow this link for the current list. Licenses are valid for one year from the invoice date.

Search BobCat to find DVDs at the Cooper Library and the Consortium libraries. Keep in mind that DVDs at Cooper in the Closed Stack collection can be retrieved only Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 4:30pm (not evenings or weekends). Call the Circulation Desk with questions or send email to circulation@cooper.edu.

As an alternative for Kanopy use your New York Public Library account. You can use ten credits per month as an individual, each available to you for three days. It's one more reason why you should get a New York Public Library card!


Gifts and Grants to Archives
January 31, 2019

The Library has received a gift of $10,000 to the Cooper Archives from an anonymous donor, in addition to a $10,000 grant received in late 2018 from the Cross Ridge Foundation, Inc. These funds are expected to be used for refurbishing the Archives work and storage areas, and for projects to digitize key Archives collections. A gift of $150 was also received in late 2018 from Edith Erdman of Urbana, Illinois, in gratitude for the discovery by Cooper Library staff that her father, as well as her mother, were Cooper alumni from the 1930s.
