How much of your collections budget is now going to streaming videos? Do your licenses include the permissions you want? Because streaming video is a newer medium, libraries are accepting restrictive license agreements that reduce digital inclusion and contribute to the loss of traditional library services, such as resource sharing. Academic libraries are collecting these new streaming format types in the millions, but they are not able to ILL them to underfunded libraries that may not be able to afford streaming video collections. Presenters will provide data on the need for sharing streaming videos via ILL, provide guidance on how attendees can advocate for the license terms they want, discuss discovery & technology barriers and share a roadmap for supporting underfunded libraries by including license terms that support all libraries and services.
