Survey of Academic Library Video Content Provision Practices
The study looks at how 31 academic libraries provide video content to traditional and online classes and for other academic and scholarly purposes. The study examines the use of traditional and streamed video, the digitization of existing college video collections (commercial and proprietary), and use of gratis video from YouTube and other sources. The report helps its end users to answer questions such as: how much are libraries spending on streamed video? Traditional video? How many libraries are making use of video archives of classes, lectures, special events and speakers and what are they doing with this video? What kind of licensing models are libraries using for streamed video: pay per view, in perpetuity licensing? Fixed term? What is the role of consortia in purchasing? How happy are librarians and their patrons with the video delivery infrastructure at their institutions? How much are libraries spending on licenses to convert their existing tradition video assets to digital formats?
