I interpreted Jonathan's reference to it as an "online document= ary database" to mean they would be the hosts. A video-on-demand servic= e similar to what Annenberg and FFH&S are doing. If the $1000 was merely= to have the streaming rights I would think twice but might still do it. But= aren't most of us realizing the inevitable need for an infrastructure to di= gitize, store and deliver streaming video?  Sure there will be addition= al costs to making all those titles easily accessible to our users but I thi= nk the benefit would justify the work.

I don’t know about others, but we are approaching that level with or = without the streaming licenses. We are concerting all of our classrooms to S= mart Classrooms and “streaming”  content from the web alrea= dy, just not with films.
