How to Get Your Build by Choice Perpetual Ownership Benefit

What is Build by Choice

Your subscription to Academic Video Online includes an automatic annual benefit whereby your library can select individual video titles within the collection for perpetual rights ownership at no additional cost.  

How does it work? 

The number of titles your library can select for ownership is based upon your current annual subscription cost. You can choose from over 50,000 titles and find those available in this program through your admin portal. These titles have been visible to your users as part of your subscription, and COUNTER usage data is available at the title level to help you choose which titles to keep in perpetuity. All title selections must be completed by 12/31 of the calendar year of your renewal.

What does "Perpetual Ownership" really mean? 

By taking advantage of this subscriber benefit, your library will retain access to as well as the rights to the videos you select, even if at some point in the future you choose to no longer subscribe to the overall collection. What you are doing today is securing the rights to keep these titles accessible to your users via your library in perpetuity. 

How often can I select titles for ownership? 

This is an annual benefit – the longer you subscribe, the more titles you can keep. Also, because this benefit is based on your previous year subscription, you can select titles for ownership even if you choose not to renew your annual subscription to the collection.  All title selections must be completed by 12/31 of the calendar year of your renewal.
