The login for all online library resources is the same login you use for your email and Canvas. If you have any issues with your login, please contact Lori Cassidy.
**NOTE: Kanopy requires you to create a new login, unique to Kanopy. Your OCC login will not work there and is not connected to Kanopy.
The OCC Library offers several options for instructors to access streaming film in their classroom. Film databases are located on the Databases A-Z page.
These platforms all have the ability to embed or link to the films in Canvas.
Nearly all films are close-captioned. If you find a film that is not, please contact Lori Cassidy to get the film captioned.
All of our films are licensed to be shown in the classroom and viewed by current OCC students privately. If you are looking for a film for an event or club, please consult the Permitted Uses guide or contact Lori Cassidy before using the film.
The library is accepting requests to license streaming films on an annual or permanent basis. Requests will be filled based on funding and availability. Many films are not available for us to license in an online format, but we will do our best to locate your film.
The library has begun purchasing licenses for perpetual access on the Kanopy and Films on Demand platforms. These films are a permanent part of the library collection, so you can feel safe to use them in your class for years to come. Typically, we focus on high-use films or films that are getting pulled from the current offerings, but we will consider other films as well. You can fill out the "Make Your Request" form above to request these. Not all films are available with a perpetual license. We tend to buy these in batches with last minute funds, so it's best to get your request in the queue.
Periodically, Kanopy and Films on Demand lose the licenses to specific films. This is typically done twice a year, in January and June. Typically, we receive notification of discontinued titles. Unfortunately, we don't have a way to determine which faculty member has assigned a particular film, so we have limited options for notifying faculty of impending changes. Best practice is to check your films at the beginning of each semester to make sure that they are available. You can also contact Lori Cassidy and provide a list of films that you will be using in the upcoming semester(s). If we know the films you are using, we can notify you if the film is discontinued or if a perpetual license is available.
