Shared Streaming Video Collection (Iris)

The Iris Education streaming service ceased operations at the end of December 2016. This page remains as a record of a previously licensed product.

The Shared Streaming Video collection is now hosted by McIntyre Media.

This collection includes 45 titles selected by media librarians and licensed on a perpetual basis for all BC public post-secondary libraries. A survey was conducted in 2014 to gauge interest in continuing this shared collection, with all participating institutions contributing to its administrative cost. The survey results indicated strong interest in continuing. According to the original license negotiated by AEMAC, only BC public post-secondary institutions may have access to this collection. Non-public and non-BC institutions are not eligible to participate. BC ELN is taking on the management of the shared collection of perpetual-access videos, originally created by AEMAC in 2009.
