The Library Channel: news, events, announcements

Free digital access to news and films

New York Times and Wall Street Journal

If you are a current student, faculty or staff member at Arizona State University, then you have free digital access to the New York Times (NYT) and the Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

All you need to do is activate your free subscriptions, a quick and simple process.

The WSJ service can be accessed via tablet, smartphone app or the web, and the service includes resources for faculty to seamlessly integrate content into course pages in facilitating classroom discussion of relevant and timely news stories. 

Student accounts will stay active until their graduation date, while faculty and staff will need to validate their memberships once a year.  


Films and documentaries

For ASU students, faculty and staff seeking thoughtful entertainment — everything from Chaplin to foreign and independent films — high quality video content is available to stream free of charge via the Kanopy platform.

An on-demand streaming service for public libraries and universities, Kanopy features a large, curated collection of diverse, unique and award-winning films and documentaries.

To start streaming, all you need to do is sign up.
