Netflix in an Academic Library: A Personal Case Study

From: Library Trends
Volume 58, Number 3, Winter 2010
pp. 402-411 | 10.1353/lib.0.0089



This is a personal case study of the implementation of a Netflix subscription to augment a media collection at a community college. The implementation process is explained against the backdrop of a particular collection development crisis that gripped the college media collection that year. In these particular circumstances, Netflix turned out to be an excellent, cost-effective solution.
