Abstract

As a subject librarian it's essential to produce off-air recordings of TV and radio programmes, and review the curriculum relevance of audiovisual collections. Rejuvinating the collection at the University of Lincoln produced a two-fold project in creating an autonomous off-air recording service and transfer off-air recorded videos to the more modern format of DVDs. This article not only discusses the development of an off-air recording service, but covers the need to create much-needed shelf space, copyright compliance, a quality audit of the audiovisual collection and student satisfaction.
