Adding Video Content
A number of participating libraries have expressed an
interest in adding video content to our collection of audiobooks and
(recently added) eBooks. We need your help and feedback in deciding:
THREE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO
HELP Please help us figure out how to proceed
with video content by taking these three easy steps:
Whether or not to add
video content to our collection
If we do add video, how
should we proceed? (how many titles? which titles? how much
to spend? how to finance? etc.)
Test Drive some Video:
Use the Demo site (instructions below)
and see how you like it.
Review and evaluate the
title lists and publisher information
short survey. by February 20th.
has set up a demo site for us. We can use
it to download video titles (and other formats)
until March 1st. Login information is:
comes time to actually check out an item,
you will be prompted for a barcode and pin.
Use any ten digits as a
barcode and leave PIN
field blank. Overdrive
suggests using your area code and phone
number which is easy to remember and won't
be duplicated by other users.
Overdrive offers over
4200 video titles. A few of these
publishers (PBS, A&E, Image Ent.) only allow
titles to be purchased as bundled "Maximum
Access" packages. That information, along
with prices are available on the
Video Publishers with
avg. price and # of titles
Master List of video
Note: The least
expensive Maximum Access package is the 50 title A&E
package at $5625. The popular PBS video
package would cost a minimum of $7300.
Choosing to add maximum access titles would
therefore mean a change of focus for the consortium
in 2009, and a possible increase in cost to support
in touch with you by the end of the month to discuss the
results of the survey and possible next steps regarding
video content. Thank you!
