Streaming Video Conference call was lively, informative and a worthwhile endeavor.

Search to fill open electronic resource coordinator is keeping pace and interviews will occur soon.

Product Proposals

IBISWorld:  Has not responded with a revised proposal.

Statista:  Cindy agrees that it is a library materials purchase as opposed to a tool, which is necessary to have a trial and request a quote.

Kanopy:  Cindy has reached out, but has yet to hear back.

Future Projects

Cindy mentioned the possibility of a webinar in conjunction with the Technical Services Committee focusing on some of the complexities posed by streaming video as well as a webinar on copyright and streaming video.

Edith volunteered to itemize and distill the topics that arose during the conference call.

This could lay the groundwork for a CARLI membership survey on streaming video to draw up a best practices white paper for the Committee's annual project.
