The pandemic fundamentally changed students’ expectations and demand for streaming video and other electronic resources beyond the classroom, as libraries faced shutdowns and sheltering in place led to a spike in usage for entertainment purposes.
To better understand how academic libraries are changing their streaming video acquisition strategies in light of these changing demands, Kanopy conducted an informal survey in October 2021. More than 475 librarians from various types of academic institutions participated.
