It is estimated that more than 50 percent of academic libraries offer streaming video services, and many faculty are incorporating streaming video content into their classes. Libraries are making excellent strides in supporting this information need. Collection and acquisition options and strategies, as well as legal issues associated with streaming video, will be highlighted during the webinar.
• Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily: Wading into Streaming Video – deg farrelly, Media Librarian, Arizona State University Libraries
The 2012 chair of the National Media Market (http://www.nmm.net/), media librarian deg farrelly, will examine how video collection development differs from the print models librarians already know and the current state of streaming video from leading educational video distributors. The discussion will cover collection and pricing models, hosting options, and options for content identification and selection, as well as issues in library workflow related to streaming video.
• Streaming and Digital Collections: legal responsibilities and pitfalls – Terrence McCormack, Associate Director and Head, M. Robert Koren Center for Clinical Education, Charles B. Sears Law Library, University at Buffalo
Law librarian Terry McCormack will review the legal issues related to the streaming distribution of licensed and unlicensed media content via institutional networks and the Web. The discussion will include the types of streaming media license agreements and the related implications concerning fair use, use in perpetuity, and the rules associated with distant education. The speaker will also address how agreements may define and stipulate the life of streaming content, types of digital storage, and methods of access. In addition, the obligations of the institution or library in obtaining copyright releases and permissions for streaming distribution of scholarly proceedings and related content will also be discussed.
