OverDrive Completes Acquisition of Kanopy
We are excited to announce that we have completed the acquisition of Kanopy, a leading video streaming service for public and academic libraries.
Kanopy adds the industry’s most acclaimed video catalog to the OverDrive Marketplace to better serve public and academic libraries around the world. With an award-winning catalog of over 30,000 highly curated films, Kanopy is used by millions of students and library patrons on all major web, mobile and TV platforms. OverDrive, through its award-winning Libby library app and Sora student reading app, provides ebooks and audiobooks to more than 73,000 libraries and schools worldwide.
“With the sale completed, we will work closely with the Kanopy team with input from library partners to maximize benefits to public and academic libraries, suppliers and employees,” said Steve Potash, founder and CEO of OverDrive. “We look forward to extending the value of the Kanopy content and service through their complementary content and technologies.”
More details on the integration of the Kanopy catalog will be available later this year. To ensure you don’t miss out on key updates, make sure your email preferences are up to date.
