Hi Marissa,



Our DVD usage has definitely fallen, but they are still used. All of our University PC's have a DVD drive, so students can watch films on any of our computers, of which there are about 250 in the library itself. We also loan headphones.



Kind regards,



Michael

Subject: The demise of the DVD!



We will soon be moving to a new library building and are reviewing our DVD stock in light of this move, as well as module changes and financial limitations.  As I’m sure is the case with most other academic libraries, we are finding that our DVD collection is being used less and less as a result of streaming services and fewer students having access to DVD players.  We do have a Kanopy subscription but this doesn’t cover a lot of the more mainstream material currently in our collection.  I know Netflix doesn’t offer any kind of institutional license (except their educational license for one off screenings).   We are in therefore in discussions about whether we should continue to purchase new titles in DVD format (and replace old damaged titles) and if so, how we can improve usage figures.  We have looked into lending external DVD drives from the library helpdesk but an ex-public library employee has told us that they weren’t permitted to provide these due to rights restrictions.  Has anyone else come across this?  



It would be great to hear how other libraries are dealing with the demise of the DVD and how other institutions are providing access to audiovisual material (especially core titles on reading lists) going forward.



Thanks
