Building on the success of an electronic book PDA program, Milner Library at Illinois State University decided to dip a toe into streaming media on-demand licensing. The library is working with Kanopy, a distributor of online educational video, to implement a patron-driven streaming video licensing service. By making the thousands of films in Kanopy’s catalog available to our users, Milner Library hopes to provide a growing selection of relevant streaming video to support teaching, learning, and research at Illinois State University.This presentation will cover our library's experiences and strategies during the planning stage (determining need, vendor and content selection, identifying stakeholders, securing funding, etc.) and outcomes from the initial months of implementation (promotion and outreach, communication with Kanopy, preparing and loading MARC records, etc.). We will also cover usage statistics and more general observations about user response to the program.
