W01: Video without Fear: What You Must Know
Collecting audiovisual content can be intimidating. There are so many decisions to be made: will you acquire physical, or streaming formats? What licensing model works best for your library? How will your patrons access the content? What must you know about copyright, exemptions, fair use, and DRM? How can you make the most impact while working within your budget?

In this workshop you will learn how you can apply what you already know about e-resources acquisitions to audiovisual collecting. The instructors will highlight best practices for making collection decisions for audiovisual content, focusing on models for purchase or licensing and budget optimization when acquiring these resources for your users. The instructors will cover:

  • Copyright considerations (and how they affect acquisition decisions)
  • Collection development policies that respect financial and institutional priorities
  • Licensing and purchase options for physical and digital formats
  • Technological considerations including hosting content, accessibility challenges (on-off campus, multiple browsers/devices), and streaming platform features
  • Assessment techniques for evaluating audiovisual resources in terms of hard costs (dollars) as well as soft (time)
  • The future of audiovisual collections, including challenges that arise when new audiovisual content is not available for institutional purchase or licensing.

During this workshop, you will have multiple opportunities to apply your new knowledge in practical situations. Participants will analyze common copyright scenarios, begin to draft a collection development policy, review sample license agreements, and compare reporting features of common platforms. Time for discussion and questions will be built in to each segment.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.
