Deal brings access to 33,000 video resources to UK educators

Share this on social media:

Alexander Street Press has forged an agreement with Jisc to provide access to video resources for colleges and universities in the UK using its 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.

This agreement is said to be the result of heightened interest in EBA following agreements made in 2013 with University of Dundee and Leeds Metropolitan University.

Lorraine Estelle, executive director content and discovery and divisional CEO Jisc Collections, Jisc said: 'Jisc Collections is very pleased to work with Alexander Street Press on bringing this evidence based acquisition model to the attention of academic libraries. The model has worked very successfully for some libraries in the acquisition of e-books and we believe it has the same potential in the area of multimedia.'
