In order to stream videos in class or on your computer, you will need to sign up for an individual log in to Kanopy. If you are off-campus, you may need to sign-in to the Holman Library's subscription by providing your GRC ID number. You will use an email address for your username and will set your own password for your individual account:
If you already have a Kanopy account, you can go directly to the log in page instead by selecting "I already have an account."
Once you have signed up for an individual Kanopy account, you can log in and browse the films available for viewing. (You can also browse film titles without logging in, but will be asked to log in once you select a film title).
Each film you begin to view through Green River College's Kanopy account will charge the library for a single "use" (play credit)--
This allows us to keep track of demand and use of our films during our trial of this service.
(King County Library System + Green River or Others)
You can link your Kanopy account to multiple libraries that offer Kanopy access and manage your permissions at Kanopy's website. For example, Green River College faculty & staff can access Kanopy through both KCLS (King County Library System) and Holman Library. You will see the libraries linked to your Kanopy account on your "My Memberships" page once you log in--
You can toggle between your preferred library accounts ("memberships") on this page.
More information on managing your Kanopy memberships (and how "play credits" work if you are using a linked KCLS account) is available at Kanopy's help pages:
If you would like to set up a KCLS/GRC faculty account to view up to 5 films a month for free through KCLS (for personal, not classroom use), you can find the free sign-up here:
If you have a video you need to watch for a class, your instructor should provide you with a direct link to access the video-- either in class or through the class Canvas site. If you don't have the link for a class video, you will want to contact your instructor.
If you find other videos you would like to watch on Kanopy, you can view them with a KCLS digital account available through Green River-- up to 5 films a month!
There are more directions on how to log in to your KCLS/GRC shared digital account here:
