Announcing a new feature: Video Usage Statistics

We are pleased to announce the display and graphical view of usage statistics of your videos. Institutional administrators, Collections Managers and Content creators can now gauge the usage and response of a published video in NJVID. The graphical tools will not disrupt any existing workflow pertaining to uploading and managing videos.



Video Usage Statistics: The number of views for a video is shown under the video player. Clicking on the graph icon/button will reveal a widget which shows a graphical representation of the views. Advanced Graphing based on custom date ranges and Day/Month/Year segments are also available.

Please note that for Learning on Demand and Commercial videos, viewing of statistics is available only for the following category of users.

  • Institutional Administrators

  • Collection Managers

  • Authorized librarians

  • Content/video owners


For Commons videos, basic video statistics are displayed for all viewers.

If you need assistance with any of these tools or think that you do not have access, please email our Support team.

Announcing new feature: A tool that lists NJVID Video titles and License Expiration dates

We are excited to announce the availability of a tool that allows Institutional administrators and Librarians to view the list of commercial video titles licensed by the Institution that are available in NJVID. The tool also displays the expiration dates of the licenses for those titles.

This tool is designed to complement your existing workflows and will not disrupt any existing workflow with NJVID at your institution. To access this service, librarians can log into NJVID and select the 'Commercial Videos Licenses Listing' option from the dropdown that appears under your username or userid in the top menu.

Once logged in, you will find various sorting and filtering options to customize your view. The list can also be exported to a CSV file for further report customization and printing. If you notice any discrepency regarding the expiration dates or the license type (perpetual or periodic) then please bring it to our attention immediately.

If you need assistance with any of these tools or think that you do not have access, please email our Support team.
