Following on from previous notificationÂ please note that from today,Â 1 September 2016, the MediaHub subscription service is no longer available. However, all the multimedia content that Jisc has licensed for use by higher and further education institutions, which is currently accessed via the MediaHub subscription, is available through a new service, MediaPlus, at http://mediaplus.alexanderstreet.com.
This blog is currently being retained as an archive, so that the blog posts and resources around using multimedia content in teaching and learning remain available to the Higher and Further Education community. The blog will not be actively updated andÂ if you have any questions about the content, please email: email@example.com.
From 1 September 2016 the MediaHub subscription service will no longer be available. However, all the multimedia content that Jisc has licensed for use by higher and further education institutions, which is currently accessed via the MediaHub subscription, will be made available through a new service, MediaPlus.
MediaPlus will be hosted and delivered to existing, and new, subscribers by Alexander Street, a ProQuest Company with a strong presence in the UK academic sector. All Jisc-licensed news, film, image and music content including high profile collections such as ITN, Getty images and Wellcome Library images and sound will continue to be available to you, but new content, services and benefits will also be included such as Teachersâ€™ TV and other cross-searchable collections, hence the name MedaPlus. The new service will be available at http://mediaplus.alexanderstreet.com on 1st September.
As part of the transition between MediaHub and MediaPlus, during the month of August the current service will still be available with maintenance being kept to a minimum.
For more information about MediaPlus, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2011 Jisc MediaHub was set up to meet the needs of the UKâ€™s education and research communities to access and use licensed audio-visual content for teaching, learning and research.
It has provided a single point of access to a number of multimedia archives, both purchased by Jisc as well as aggregated from other sources, thus enabling cross-searching and exploration of TV news, documentary films, still images and classical music.
Over the years technology has changed and so has online user behaviour and the availability of digital content from a range of services. This has prompted Jisc to re-assess the continuation of MediaHub.
From July 2016 the subscription service will no longer be available from Jisc and we are looking into alternative solutions to ensure continued access to the content post-July 2016.
We will communicate updates on progress as soon as they are available.
