Whether credited to Mark Twain or Benjamin Disraeli, the quote: “There are lies, damned lies and statistics,” should be resonant for those in the business of evaluating streaming video usage and cost per use. Often data is presented from very limited and selected samples demonstrating the excellent cost-per-use of one vendor or purchase model over another vendor or purchase model. In this presentation, our aim is to present a broad data-set, capturing the cost per use of several institutions using both video aggregation products and DDA. We will avoid reference to specific vendors and specific products and only represent data from individual universities to illustrate rather than support findings from the broader data set.
In the past two years, video distributors have made significant strides in measuring engagement with, and the impact of streaming video. But let us not lose sight of the critical importance of cost-per-use in evaluating the different acquisition models available to libraries; most importantly, DDA and multi-disciplinary package subscription. Taken in sum: cost-per-use and broader measures of engagement and impact tell the complete story.
