As investment in image, video, and audio content grows exponentially, stakeholders across the scholarly communication industry are scrambling to ensure multimedia content, both free and fee, is discoverable how and where students and faculty are looking.

This panel discussion provides a 360° review of the challenges, opportunities, standards, and innovation necessary to make multimedia resources findable within academic settings. Panelists will outline their organizations’ evolving strategies for multimedia cataloging and identifiers, SEO and discoverability, and serving the researcher experience. Then panelists will address audience questions and outline tips and tricks for librarians working with content providers, discovery providers, and governing bodies to make audio visual materials more easily searchable and retrievable. Attendees of all familiarity levels will leave with actionable ways to enhance the discoverability of their digital holdings and ideas for interacting with the scholarly community.
