Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business, is working with Kanopy Streaming Service to make their growing collection of more than 18,000 videos discoverable via the Summon service.  Kanopy partners with some of the world’s most creative filmmakers and respected distributors to offer libraries videos across diverse content areas like architecture, teacher education, health and safety, culture and politics in media, health studies, and more.

Kanopy is the leading provider of online video to Australian University Libraries, distributing a catalogue of videos sourced from leading filmmakers around the world. Kanopy offers a Patron Driven Demand (PDD) product whereby institutions can select PDD packages, and are only charged once a video is heavily viewed.

With a vision to pioneer education video through innovation and collaboration, Kanopy forges new educational applications to increase student/academic engagement and interactivity.  In addition, they partner with filmmakers to promote and support a vibrant, active and sustainable screen community. 

A highly subscribed to resource by libraries in Australia, Serials Solutions acted on requests to expand coverage of videos and specifically Kanopy content to the Summon service.
