The NY 3Rs Association Inc. is sponsoring another webinar session on the video streaming Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) service called Kanopy on June 10 at 3:00 pm EST for those libraries who would like more information about Kanopy and their product. The NY3Rs have also partnered with Kanopy to bring libraries a discounted rate of 10% on individual titles triggered for a one year license in an individual PDA program. Additionally, a substantial discount (35%) on the licensing of the Media Education Foundation collection as well as discounts on other film collections are available. Please note: Media Education Foundation collection is not available through the PDA service option. Further discounts are available for community college libraries and libraries with FTE under 1500.
To receive the PDA and collection discounts, participants must sign on with Kanopy before July 31, 2015.

This webinar runs on join.me and does not require any special software. Audio will come through your phone. The day before the webinar, you will receive the link to the join.me room as well as the phone number to call.
There is no cost ($0) to attend these webinars but registration is necessary. During registration, when asked for a form of payment, simply select “Pay by check later” and you will not be billed. This is a quirk of the registration system and is being addressed.
