10 Key Findings from a Survey of Academic Library Streaming Video

deg farrelly, Media Librarian/ShareStream Administrator, Arizona State University

In Spring 2013 the presenters conducted a survey on streaming video in academic libraries.

The survey was the first large-scale and most comprehensive effort to date to collect data on streaming video funding, licensing, acquisition, and hosting in academic libraries. Its results provide baseline data for future explorations of this rapidly expanding approach to video in academic libraries.

Survey questions addressed selection and acquisition of video in both hard copy and streaming formats, funding for acquisitions, current and planned hosting interfaces, cataloging and access, and current practice and policy on digitization of hard copy titles for streaming.

This presentation summarizes key findings from the survey with data of interest to both librarians and exhibiting partners.

Ongoing Streaming Video Initiatives within an Academic Library

For libraries, developing comprehensive streaming media services can be resource intensive, requires innovative professional collaboration and often competes with other priorities. To date, Rutgers University has successfully contributed to the development of a state-wide video repository, hosts commercial titles on internal servers, provides access across multiple platforms, and more. We would like to share our experience navigating institutional pressures, user demands and complex rights issues to provide robust streaming media services to our diverse community.
