Slides from Eileen Lawrence

Recently, libraries have seen a vast increase of video products as many new journals and information resources now contain extensive video.  Video today is powerful and effective utilizing communication techniques that resonate widely because of its visual appeal, action and ability to retain attention.  Video is increasingly represented in library collections where primary sources and video elements are being combined in a single product.

The impact of video on library collections has been far reaching as new generations of readers and users find this medium instructive and scholarly complimenting the traditional text-based materials and libraries promote their value.  Video allows for reinforced instruction with supports for multiple learning styles/needs, enhancing the role of primary sources, easy access, ability to replay, supplements other information resources, and is increasingly popular with more spontaneous viewing options.  Information providers are utilizing filming techniques that capture real time, relevant locations and content from multiple sources. 

Library collections are expanding to respond to user preferences, link content in different formats, promote interdisciplinarity, demonstrate a new form of relevance and integrate traditional print with multimedia.  This accommodation in library collections guides future development that bridges the edutainment aspect of learning with a more entertainment preferred context and accompanying library services such as streaming.  The multimedia innovation that is entering the information marketplace makes these new resources value enriched in multiple ways making sense of complex issues with experts in the field.  Libraries are engaged in the production of scholarship by faculty and students and video is an active element. This presentation will concentrate on the library decision-making factors and introduce the expanding product lines of JoVE, IdeasRoadshow, and Alexander Street Press. These publishers provide more symmetry for conversation, discussion and response to information and offer perspective and insights on how their products are changing scholarly publishing and thus the landscape of library collections.
