Title:Drawing a Fine Line Between Promoting Use and Preserving Access to New Media
Author(s):Laskowski, Mary S.; Teper, Thomas H.
Preservation and Conservation
Media Collections
Abstract:Over the last decade, the media collection development and curation policies at the University Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign moved from a strong emphasis on restricting access to media content for faculty and classroom use only to a more open philosophy committed to supporting media needs across the curriculum for patrons at all levels, for promoting personal growth, and supporting the enrichment of student life and culture. The Library now actively promotes the use of media content in a variety of forms, including a new gaming collection, and media collections continue to grow in popularity, as evidenced by high circulation and demand for new titles. These changes in the proposed uses of media, as well as multiple changes in available formats and forms of access, present the institution with significant preservation challenges that need to be addressed in order to ensure the ongoing availability of these resources.
