It's definitely not a model you would apply to building "collections",
but it looks like it's the model we are stuck with, in providing
"content" to the classroom. The issue is that you obviously don't want
all your eggs in one basket (one digital streaming vendor). But when you
provide more than one service, then you have more and more codes,
usernames, passwords, sign-up passwords, admin passwords, etc, etc, etc.

=20

I guess we will have "collections" of digital streams...some housed
locally (if you build the infrastructure) and some vendor based. It's a
whole new way of looking at things.

Subject: [Videolib] streaming video=3D serials pricing model

=20

It is rather obvious to me that streaming video is moving to an
environment where it can be treated not like monographs (buy it, use it,
lend it, ILL it), to a serials model (pay for a access to a select group
of users, vendors expect to charge annual fees, and libraries have to
pay more and more each year). Unfortunately, this model is great for
vendors--and a useful way to fund infrastructure improvements necessary
to deliver digital--but it has not yet proved to be financially viable
for libraries long-term.

=20

I fear that in the future, academic libraries will spend large portions
of their budget on digital "big deals" at the expense of smaller,
independently produced films that don't have all the bells & whistles. =20

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
