You do not need to edit our records before importing them into your catalog unless you have specific design changes you need to make for your own catalog requirements.
You will notice the link in the 856 URL field is customized to your library’s particular Kanopy website. You may also notice these links are unproxied. This choice is intentional and will not hinder access, as we have set up your Kanopy website so that unproxied URLs will always work. If someone clicks on the unproxied film link, they will have immediate access to the films on campus (via IP authentication) or will be automatically redirected to your off-campus authentication method of choice.
This way, you can employ shorter URLs for your films across your library websites while maintaining unlimited on- and off-site access for users.
