In 2014 W. M. Randall Library subscribed to a package of streaming videos from Media Education Foundation. We already owned DVDs of 72% of titles in the package but their high circulation rates and faculty requests for streaming access warranted the cost of duplicating the content. One year later we assessed use of the titles in both the DVD and streaming collections. Our presentation will share our findings. The results may push us to change our collection development policy in terms of video format preference, duplication, and access vs. ownership. We will end the presentation with an open conversation with the audience about whether libraries have identified best practices for video selection that can be shared.
