In 2011 Jisc MediaHub was set up to meet the needs of the UK’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.
