SILLVR: Streaming Interlibrary Loan Video Resources and Accessibility in Multimedia Content: Where did we come from, what are we, where are we going?

SILLVR: Streaming Interlibrary Loan Video Resources is an innovative initiative allowing libraries to ILL streaming videos for the first time. By leveraging relationships with local consortia (Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries) and building partnerships with streaming video vendors, the Streaming Interlibrary Loan Video Resources (SILLVR) pilot launched in January 2020. This launch started just as the world saw the need for increased access to electronic resources as physical libraries and print materials were inaccessible for most. SILLVR demonstrates how vendors and libraries can work together to increase access to underfunded libraries and meet the needs of patrons. The SILLVR pilot continues in 2021 continuing to build on partnerships and build new ones. Attendees will learn about how SILLVR came to be, SILLVR workflows, and advice on how others can create their own SILLVR program.
Video and audio content are growing as a portion of scholarly output, and libraries are increasing the percentage of their budgets allocated to such resources. However, while there are some innately accessible aspects to these mediums, ensuring true accessibility by all who wish to access these resources doesn’t just happen. The existing accessibility requirements often don’t go far enough or have widespread uptake. This presentation will discuss the many kinds of accessibility that need to be addressed and their challenges; examples of today’s standards and guidelines and current efforts, such as the NISO working group, Assessing Video and Audio Metadata and Standards for Academic Research and Professional Information, to provide clarity and rigor; the ethical imperative as well as the business case for doing so (there are many other benefits, from increased discoverability to enhanced engagement); and some ideas about how the technology is pointing toward future accessibility milestones.
