Abstract

This article presents the results of a faculty survey conducted by the Hong Kong Baptist University Library regarding faculty attitudes and comments on the use of audio-visual materials for teaching. Results showed a fairly high level of AV material use for teaching, overall satisfaction regarding material content, and overall dissatisfaction regarding content currency and content variety. The article further discusses the Library's corresponding actions, including VHS conversion and relocation projects, revisiting AV collection development policy and procedures, a video-on-demand service for scholarly events and local TV programs, a new visual and audio search page, and the media consultancy service.
