Increasingly, video and audio resources are being used in the university environment to educate, distribute research findings, and broadcast public lectures and events. Despite significant advances in technology, creating and distributing open-to-view and open-to-re-use video can be complex. Swinburne Library has established a centralised service called Swinburne Commons that supports staff in the storage, description and distribution of open video and audio content. In reflecting on the establishment of the service, this paper suggests that experience gained from institutional repositories and open publishing endeavours can give libraries an advantage in the distribution of other institutionally-created content, such as digital media.
