Kanopy Streaming Requests Update

Noteworthy: The University Libraries Blog - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 19:26
Dear Loyola’s, At present due to budget concerns we’ve had to turn off the open, non-licensed, content in Kanopy until we understand where we stand with them. We have a meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon that should hopefully show us whether we’re over budget or on track for things and will make some decisions accordingly. Please note this does not effect the hundreds of already licensed titles in Kanopy. What this means for you is that faculty members who may rely on Kanopy for their course work this term have a suggested set of ways to make this transition easier. This is not meant to alarm you- we can still license content for faculty even if the budget for Kanopy is tight. What I would ask you to do is to check upcoming titles as soon as possible using the link at and make sure the titles you need area available to play. If they’re not licensed yet a message will display asking you to fill out your name, email, and some additional details to request the film. That e-mail will come directly to me and I’ll be able to license the film within 24 business hours. This means […]
