When it comes to streaming videos, what faculty members want is fairly straightforward, said Michael Arthur, head of acquisitions and collection services at the University of Central Florida (UCF): unlimited simultaneous usage; no concerns around digital rights management (DRM) or public performance rights-the ability to use a video outside of the classroom, for example, or to invite students from other classes to view it; ease of use for students and easy integration with online course software; variety and topicality.

Not only do students not know about their campus library's video holdings, Arthur said, but faculty too are often unaware of library content-even when they're using it. The library should be actively marketing these resources, he said, through library and subject librarian newsletters, digital signs in the library, direct email to key faculty members, articles in faculty publications, and presentations to the faculty by librarians and publishers at workshops and conferences. The library should include faculty in its selection process whenever possible, he added.
...
Many began incorporating video as VHS, said Arthur, and had gotten comfortable with DVDs-but with ten regional campuses at UCF, the use of DVDs is impractical and expensive, so the university will only use them when there is no streaming option.
...
The general preference is to buy streaming with perpetual rights; Leonard pointed out that SAGE provides this, and Arthur mentioned Alexander Street Press as a vendor that offers a number of palatable options.
...
All UNCG's video has closed captioning, Bernhardt said, while at UCF, said Arthur, "it's not a deciding factor but we always look to see if it's an option."
