Regis first subscribed to Symptom in 2011, after a free trial.  As you might 
expect, the site is used mainly by our nursing school.  When it came time to 
renew the subscription, I talked with the group who originally recommended the 
purchase and they were all in favor of renewing.  My only gripe with 
administering the site is that Symptom doesn't provide a way to measure usage 
statistics.  I can't really critique the content because health care is way out 
of my comfort range, but the site has been reliable and I don't remember ever 
fielding a complaint.

Get your interested faculty on board with a free trial and then set the trial 
up for a time period where faculty have the time to put the site through its 
paces.  If you have any other questions, email me.

Dear Videolib-ers,

On behalf of a colleague at another institution, I am looking for information 
about a streaming video resource called Symptom 
Media<>, which appears to only have been 
mentioned on this listserv once before (in a post about programming at Kanopy's 
stand at ALA Annual 2014). Please let me know (on- or off-list) if you are 
familiar with this resource and are willing to tell me what you think about it!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues 
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, 
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and 
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective 
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication 
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and
