Streaming Video

Check out the streaming video options currently available at Olympic College Libraries.


Kanopy offers access to thousands of documentary films and also to films listed in the "Criterion Collection."  The library pays a fee per view and when our budget runs out, so does access for ALL students and faculty!!  Therefore we ask that you use this service for course-assigned viewing only.
