Following a successful preview period, EDINA is pleased to announce the first release of the JISC MediaHub interface to a wider audience at http://jiscmediahub.ac.uk, available via the UK Access Management Federation or direct IP.
Access to the resource has been enabled for all institutions subscribing to Education Image Gallery, Film & Sound Online or NewsFilm Online. In addition, access to each of those individual services continues in parallel via their respective login pages until August.
We would like to thank those who submitted comments during the JISC MediaHub preview phase. We have corrected some bugs as a result and will continue to consider other suggestions for future development. Please submit your comments via the online survey available via the Feedback link on the homepage or the Contact Us link at the bottom of each page.
Licensing arrangements with some collection-owners are still to be concluded, for a few collections both inside and outside JISC MediaHub. We will make these collections available individually as soon as the licensing for each collection is agreed.
Service development will continue incrementally until availability of the full service this August. We will provide progress updates here over the coming months.
As JISC Collections announced in March, [http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/News/NFO-update/ or http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/News/EIG-update/ or http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/News/FASO-update/] this August JISC MediaHub will become part of a new service, managed by JISC Collections in partnership with EDINA and Mimas, that will consist of three new content platforms (one of which is JISC MediaHub). There will be a service fee to cover all three content platforms, the details of which are available from JISC Collections, www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/jiscecollections.
