Exciting new services scheduled for KCRS


We have been busy to improve services here in the Kent Cooper Room. Based on your feedback, we've added a link to the home page to let you know how you can post your own digital forms to e-Reserves (see E-Reserves Training Sessions), we've added foreign language CDs to the media browsing collection, and we are in the process of ordering Audiobooks on CD and videogames. Be sure to check back with us on occassion to take advantage of these new services.

We are also currently uploading educational documentary streaming files into IUCAT. I will call on many of you to provide feedback about the pilot project.

I look forward to working with you all, and on behalf of the KCRS staff, we welcome your continued input and hope to see you soon!

New study shows increased use of Online Video

Check out this latest report conducted by Pew Internet & American Life Project hosted by Princeton Research Associates. Wow!

Abstract: The Pew Internet & American Life Project’s first major report on online video also shows how many video viewers have contributed to the viral and social nature of online video. More than half of online video viewers (57 percent) share links to the video they find with others, and three in four (75 percent) say they receive links to watch video that others have sent to them.
