The Future of Video Playback Capability in College and University Classrooms
Spicer, Scott; Horbal, Andrew
College & Research Libraries, v78 n5 p706-722 Jul 2017
Instructional support is one of the primary reasons academic libraries collect video materials. Nonetheless, no one has published research into the perceptions of the people who install and maintain the equipment used to play these materials in college and university classrooms regarding the longevity of physical media formats. To address this gap in the literature, the authors of this paper surveyed classroom audiovisual (AV) support professionals from 49 ARL institutions and conducted seven follow-up interviews. The results indicate steps that academic libraries need to take now if they want their video collections to remain relevant and accessible.
