This is a guide to books, audiobooks, e-books, streaming videos, and related resources for the CWU community.

PBS - Public Broadcasting Service

Many PBS programs have extensive internet resources that supplement their broadcast. In addition, the Frontline website includes complete streaming versions of over fifty titles from the last four years as well as Frontline "classics".

Kanopy -perhaps available through your public library

In addition to CWU's Kanopy subscription, your public library might have its own Kanopy subscription with access to more popular and entertainment videos.  Kanopy provides each participating public library and university with a dedicated and customizable website through which members can stream films. The service includes features such as captions, transcripts, clip creation, and playlist creation that allow users to share videos.
