Rob Rando asked if I could distribute this to the Overdrive email list. The wording below is his/Overdrive's. Thanks - Kate
Kanopy is now OverDrive's flagship streaming video app to delight and educate your patrons.
Attached, you will find a detailed summary of Kanopy, including highlights on our thoughtfully curated and unparalleled collection of film, a breakdown of how our pricing model works, the mechanics of designing your program to match your library's needs, and why your patrons will be excited about using Kanopy.
Smaller libraries are often surprised to learn that 67% of libraries we partner with are under 30,000 cardholders and span between small towns and rural communities. Kanopy is a great fit for smaller libraries because you'll only pay for content patrons are actually watching. We don't charge any additional fees, allowing your library to feel more comfortable offering Kanopy's wide collection of films.
All patrons need in order to access Kanopy on their own is a valid library card, and an internet connection to stream films. Kanopy limits access to just your patrons by using either SIP2, Patron API, Sirsi REST API, EZProxy, or barcode pattern authentication if a server connection is not available.
If you are interested in seeing a quote, please reach out to email@example.com:firstname.lastname@example.org (cc: email@example.com:firstname.lastname@example.org) with your current active cardholder count, and she would be happy to supply a suggested annual budget based on the trends they've seen from other similarly sized libraries.
