Current Collection Development Strategies for Video

Collecting video content today poses challenges for the academic library. Diverse missions lead to very different collection development needs across academic libraries. Large research institutions may desire to collect for perpetuity, while smaller collections are often more curriculum-focused. Video collection strategies vary based on mission, budget, technological infrastructure, and other factors. Acquiring video content is complicated by the variety of formats and licensing options the academic librarian must take into consideration. In this panel, academic librarians who collect video content will discuss collecting to support research now and in the future, collecting to support curricular needs, and collaboration between institutions for cooperative collection decisions. We will discuss our strategies for maximizing budgets and address the philosophy of access versus ownership. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide additional ideas for ways that librarians can enhance and improve video acquisition.
