SCIS can catalogue online videos requested by schools, as long as they:
- Are current, authoritative and/or appropriate for school students.
- Have already been broadcast, not just in a television guide.
- Are available for cataloguers to view through platforms such as ClickView Exchange or EnhanceTV.
- Are available on free streaming sites such as ABC iView, SBS On Demand or BBC. These may be rejected based on accessibility and longevity.
- Are full episodes or programs, not segments.
Requesting videos to be catalogued: - Search SCIS Data using title or series search to ascertain whether a record already exists - Fill in the Cataloguing Request form
- Provide an accurate detailed title. Include the series and episode title if applicable e.g. Places of worship. Series 1, episode 5. Inside a Hindu Mandir
- The URL provided must be accessible by SCIS cataloguers, including:
- Publicly available internet sites.
- ClickView Exchange and EnhanceTV.
- Unique, school-based URL links to videos are not accessible to SCIS cataloguers, nor are links to commercial streaming services.
Some points to note:
- Platforms such as ABC iView, SBS on demand or the BBC only provide short-term access to videos. Videos from these sites are assessed for longevity and whether they have been broadcast (meeting copyright laws).
- YouTube videos are assessed for violations of copyright.
- SCIS does not have subscriptions to commercial streaming services such as Netflix or Stan, records cannot be provided for videos only available on these platforms.
- While SCIS will make every attempt to catalogue video requests, we may not be able to catalogue bulk requests within the usual turn-around times.
- If you have a ClickView subscription, it is recommended that you upload any previously broadcast videos to ClickView Exchange if not already in there. SCIS is able to access the videos through that platform.
