Kanopy Streaming Video

Kanopy is a streaming video resource with a collection of over 26,000 films from leading producers such as the Criterion Collection, The Great Courses, New Day Films, HBO California Newsreel, Kino Lorber, PBS, BBC, First Run Features, The Video Project, Media Education Foundation, and Documentary Education Resources.

Kanopy’s website makes it easy to watch, share, and discuss films at home and in OSU classes. Viewing Kanopy films in a group forum is permitted as long as the viewing is by authorized viewers and it is not for commercial benefit (i.e. no admission costs are charged and no profit is made from the screening). These films are also available through the library catalog.

Registering for a free Kanopy account allows the viewing of Kanopy films on smart devices such as phones and TVs.

Access to the Kanopy collection of movies is available through the joint support of OSU Libraries and Ecampus.
