Presentation: USF Libraries Streaming Media Information

Carol Ann Davis, Associate Dean, gave a presentation to interested USF Libraries faculty and staff to explain why streaming media is so complicated. This included a discussion of associated technological issues, copyright, and perpetual versus leased access. Streaming media has been an ongoing challenge for the library for the past few years as demand skyrocketed but no new money was added to the budget to support this initiative. At the end of the 2021 calendar year, the USF Libraries plan to shut down the Kanopy and Swank platforms where we repeatedly pay to lease titles that we do not own. The goal of this session was to provide librarians and staff a stronger foundation in understanding the process and answering faculty questions.
