The Library now offers Kanopy, a streaming video service accessible to all MSU faculty, staff, and students through a Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) pilot program. How it works: Kanopy will trigger our purchase of unlimited access to a film for a year once the film has been viewed more than four times. Our subscription to the Kanopy service covers subject areas including the Arts, Business, Global studies, Media/Communications, General Sciences, and Social Sciences. Specific titles not covered by our subscription may be requested for library purchase through the Kanopy interface. Many films have closed captioning and transcripts and can be embedded in courseware or used for viewing in the classroom. Users can access Kanopy on and off-campus through the library list of e-resources or through the library catalog with an MSU login.
