Play Credits & Monthly Limits

Moffat Library patrons receive ten (10) play credits per month. Most videos – whether a film or a television episode – uses one play credit. Some videos – including all content in Kanopy Kids and the Great Courses educational series – do not take up a play credit and can be watched as much as you like.

Once you select a video and press the play button, you will have three (3) days to view it. During that three day period, you can watch the video as many times as you like without using another play credit. Kanopy will automatically keep track of your play credits.  Your number of play credits will reset back to ten on the first day of each month.
