Videos in digital libraries: What’s in it for libraries, publishers and scientists?

Half day workshop during the TPDL 2016 Conference in Hannover, Germany, September 8th, 2016


The aim of the workshop is to encourage debate between scientists, publishers and libraries on the use of videos as a method of scientific communication, and their potential. The workshop encourages participants to reflect critically on scientists’ incentives to produce video material and to discuss the process related to the production, dissemination, sharing and use of scientific videos. It also offers science communicators, publishers, librarians and researchers the opportunity to share their previous experience with scientific videos in their particular research field, and to identify examples of best practice.
