Abstract

Despite growing volume and popularity, institutional video content is the least curated and least discoverable of all content types. Although users expect ubiquitous access to all content, regardless of format, video is under-catalogued/indexed and therefore not easily accessible. Video, especially institutional video, is not available to discovery services, and rights management concerns inhibit availability. Therefore, libraries are missing an opportunity to showcase their relevance. This paper presents research on the hypothesis that utilizing automated transcription to programmatically create rich metadata promotes discoverability and usability of institutionally created video.
