Unlimited access to 33,000 video resources now available to UK educators

“Alexander Street Press has forged an agreement with Jisc to provide access to video resources for colleges and universities in the UK using the publisher’s popular evidence-based acquisition (EBA) model. The EBA agreement gives colleges and universities in the UK the opportunity to have unlimited access to Alexander Street Press’ complete suite of academic video titles - more than 33,000 titles - for up to one year at a time. At the end of this period, university staff can use Alexander Street Press’ detailed metrics to evaluate their patrons’ most-viewed titles and select those they’d like to incorporate into their permanent collection.” (via Jisc)

Getty Museum and Khan Academy Partner in Online Learning

“The Getty Museum offers a treasure trove of educational videos about art history and art-making. Our YouTube channel features topics ranging from the mummification process (in all its gory glory) to the making of intricate and colorful medieval manuscripts. I’m happy to announce that dozens of these videos will now be featured by the Khan Academy, a non-profit that seeks to provide free world-class education to anyone, anywhere. As a first step, today more than 80 videos, created primarily by the Museum’s Collection Information and Access department, have been released on Khan Academy’s website. Moving forward, we will work with Khan Academy’s art historians, Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker, to create new videos, critical-thinking exercises, and quizzes.” (via The Getty Iris)

OCLC Innovation in Libraries videos

“The videos from Innovation in Libraries are finally ready! And a shout out to all video content producers, because each time we work on large numbers of videos I am reminded how labor-intensive the editing, uploading, description process can be. But hooray! Now even if you weren’t able to attend Innovation in Libraries, you can still benefit from the collective wisdom shared at the post-LITA event back in October. All the videos–including Phil Simon, our keynote speaker–are available in a single Innovation in Libraries playlist on YouTube.”

Video loans rise quickly at libraries

Boston Globe – “Borrowed any good videos lately from the library? If you have, you are in good company. Video lending has exploded during the past five years, rising at a far higher rate than the lending of books or audio, according to information from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Video lending statewide more than doubled between 2000 and 2010, from 6.6 million videos to 14.1 million.”
