New Video Entries in the SuSanA Library

Dear all,

Some of you might notice that we have recently added a total of 55 new video entries in the SuSanA library. The videos/webinars available in the library are the ones that had more than 1000 views on the SuSanA YouTube channel to date.

We have curated the videos according to the spesific topic, for example: this library entry Community Led Total Sanitation in Bangladesh contains more than one video/link which are listed as a part of the documentary video. To find a more spesific video, you could combine the search function with the available filters.

Here are some of the list of the video entries:
1) SuSanA Monthly Webinar
2) SEI Webinar
3) Reinvent the Toilet Fair in Delhi, India
4) Promoting Ecological Sanitation in Kenya

Other videos can be found in the SuSanA library here .

Best regards,
Ainul on behalf of the SuSanA Secretariat

Re: New Video Entries in the SuSanA Library

Dear Ainul,

I think this is an excellent initiative. I see that in the meantime, the number of videos in the SuSanA library has risen to nearly 70. Thanks, Ainul!

There are currently 400 videos uploaded to SuSanA's Youtube channel. We from the SuSanA secretariat felt that transferring all 400 videos to the library would be too much work and not worthwile. Many of them are now almost obsolete, with only less than 100 views. Our olderst videos are now 8 years old. (actually they are not "ours", they are videos of SuSanA partners that were uploaded to SuSanA's Youtube channel).

For the future though, I think our plan should be to add library entries for all videos that we upload to the SuSanA youtube channel. Why? Because it makes a library search more fruitful: the user can search the SuSanA library, using keywords and filters and is presented with a range of results matching his or her search criteria: publications, posters, drawings, presentations and also videos.

If you have produced interesting videos on sanitation related topics that are not yet in the SuSanA library please bring them to our attention and we will add them to the library. Note a library entry does not mean that your video would have to be uploaded to the SuSanA Youtube channel. The library entry would just link to the youtube URL. It could also link to the video in another medium, like Vimeo.

Here is an example of how such a video library entry looks:
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...library/details/3253

It's just an embedded youtube video link but the advantage is that we can now apply the library filters on the item so that we can give the user a better search experience.

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. SuSanA partners can also link to their videos from their partner profile page. See the SuSanA partner profile page of Water Sector Trust Fund in Kenya as an example:
