We've been streaming videos via our online catalog. To view the videos =
a
user needs to be authenticated either by being on a campus subnet or
logging in through a proxy server. The only vendor we've contracted wi=
th
to date is Films Media Group though I hope to license PBS titles this
summer.

It was important to us that users be able to find the videos the same w=
ay
they would locate the physical versions without having to be taught a
second path. We're doing the digitizing and also host the streaming ser=
ver.
