Hi Diane,
Great topic, thanks for starting the conversation.  I would suggest adding the videolib listserv out of Berkeley to your workflow. When I can't find a film anywhere I hit this list. It was a lifesaver last Spring.


I also use www.justwatch.com<http://www.justwatch.com> all the time to locate streaming options. It has also been useful.

To Julie's comment, what one person finds annoying, another person may find helpful.

Diane's workflow very roughly corresponds to ours also. Searching for where something may be available is ridiculous, I agree, and you'd think there'd be a better solution out there by now. VIDEOLIB is indeed overwhelming and this seemed to me (this = where can I find x?) to comprise 99% of the traffic there. But it is a useful list anyway.

As for locally hosting for streaming, we use Ensemble (https://www.ensemblevideo.com). This is all managed, paid for, etc. by our campus IT organization, and we rely heavily on it.
