Kanopy Bundled Academic Subscription for Education (BASE) is a package of nearly 10,000 titles specially curated for academic institutions, available for one annual subscription fee. BASE titles allow unlimited viewing with no additional charge.
How do BASE titles appear on my Kanopy website?
BASE titles appear alongside any PDA or licensed titles on your Kanopy website.
When you launch your subscription, we'll provide a direct link to your BASE titles so you can promote them to your students and faculty.
Will the titles in the BASE package change?
Yes, Kanopy will refresh the titles in the BASE package periodically to provide the best film collection we can with the licensing terms available. We'll notify you of film additions and removals through a monthly email.
Can I remove any non-BASE titles from my Kanopy website?
Yes, Kanopy can remove films not included in the BASE package if requested.
However, we recommend that you allow users to discover Kanopy films that your institution hasn't licensed yet. Students and staff will be prompted to request access to any film they're interested in, and you can manage title requests through your admin account. This allows you to gauge interest and develop a collection that meets the needs of your users.
In my admin dashboard, why does the list of titles in "My Titles" and the number of products in "MARC Records" differ from the list of 10,000 titles advertised in the subscription?
In your admin dashboard, titles are grouped into a single product when they're part of a series, are short, episodic titles, or have a single MARC record. The "My Titles" page lists each product, which means that some titles are combined into one listing. There is one MARC record for each product, which means that a single MARC record can represent multiple titles.
In my admin dashboard on the "My Titles" page, why don't all BASE titles have a "Subscription" status?
If you have a curated platform and have excluded or mediated certain suppliers, titles from those suppliers in the BASE package will be manually added back into your collection. Those titles will have an "Included" status on the "My Titles" page. Learn more about title statuses.
Do BASE titles have a separate MARC records file?
No, MARC records for BASE titles can be downloaded along with other records and aren't available as a separate file.
Is there an analytics report available for the BASE titles?
Yes, you can find usage data for your BASE titles in the Subscriptions report (on the Analytics tab under "Usage"). Learn more about the Subscriptions report.
Usage data for BASE titles is also included on the Usage > Summary page.
Do you have promotional materials for my BASE package?
Yes! Visit Kanopy Press for a digital toolkit to promote your BASE collection.
