Researchers in information science are placing increased attention on data reuse and on what must be preserved with that data to enable meaningful use by scholars within and across disciplines. Although the focus has been on scientific or quantitative data, this paper expands the discussion to qualitative data – specifically digital video records of practice in the field of education. This is an interesting case because researchers and diverse education professionals are interested in reusing this content, though their needs differ. We focus on three issues that raise challenges for preservation and access: file format, context, and dissemination.
