Changes to Kanopy Streaming Service

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Kanopy is a video streaming service that provides a platform for educational video products covering a wide range of subjects. Because of the unsustainable and unpredictable costs associated with this product, Carleton Library has moved to a fully mediated access model. This means that instead of having the entire catalogue open and films that are viewed becoming automatically purchased, those who want a film through Kanopy will have to make a request. (A form appears when you click on the video). Priority for purchase will be given to faculty and instructors who need the film streamed for teaching purposes.

Carleton Library has a number of other video services, including:

Video streaming is a growing and ever-changing entity and as with all of our subscriptions, we will evaluate to ensure that we are spending collection dollars in a way that is both financially sustainable and that meets the research, teaching, and learning needs of our Carleton community.
