Whitman College has public performance rights for all the films contained in these streaming collections. This means they can be shown in class and at student events, and linked to in Canvas. If you are linking to films in Kanopy or Films on Demand it is best to use the permalink to the Sherlock (catalog) record for the film to ensure access:
