Documentary Collections – OHIO University Libraries


There are many well respected distributors of educational films.  The distributors below provide some of our biggest collections, but there are many more independent distributors.  These films may be used for classroom instruction or home use.  If you wish to screen a film publicly, please contact lorraine wochna or your subject librarian.  This is not an exhaustive list of the distributors we work with, just a sampling.
