ALCTS e-Forum: Streaming Media Collections

July 23-24, 2019

Moderated by Gisele Tanasse, Lisa Hooper, and Michele McKenzie

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

Registration information is at the end of the message.

Each day, discussion begins and ends at:

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Large-scale streaming video platforms are making more video content
directly available to our users than ever before. How do librarians plan
for and navigate issues of funding and access in a seemingly ever-expanding
sea of offerings? Topics include: strategies for using mediated mode to
improve collection development, funding models, budget management, managing
user expectations, implications for immediate and long-term access, the
effect of large-scale streaming collections on independent distributors,
and opportunities for collaboration. Join this e-Forum to share insights
and learn from national colleagues as the hosts facilitate a discussion
while sharing their own experiences and perspectives.

What Is an e-Forum?

An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters
of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The
e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email
address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate
with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two
to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.

For information about upcoming e-forums, please visit
