2.1 | Video/audio recording and editing software is available in at least one library location
Audio and video processing software, such as Adobe AfterEffects and Apple's Garageband, are used to manipulate digital media files to create music, movies, and other multimedia products. The software allows users to create breaks in the audio or video; remove, reorder, or add new audio/video tracks; speed up or slow down playback; add special effects, captions, and animations; and make other adjustments to how the media looks or sounds. Digital audio and video not only provide a means of modern communication, but enabling editing also makes artistic expression through media possible. Patrons may create and edit videos to communicate with their family and friends or to post online to a wider audience and in the process learn valuable technology skills.
FOR THE ASSESSMENT
Answer Yes if audio/video processing software is available on at least one public computer at one or more of your locations.
Answer No, but plan to in the next year if audio/video processing software is not currently available at any location, but you plan to offer such software in the next year.
Answer No, would like to but cannot at this time if you cannot install audio/video processing software on at least one public computer, perhaps due to budget constraints or IT policies external to the library.
Answer No, we have no plans to do so at this time if you have decided not to install audio/video processing software due to lack of demand or other reasons.
