Kind of makes you wonder why the producer even bothered to make the film.

Hi Lisa, The Hannah Arendt "On Benjamin" DVD can be purchased from the following site: http://www.michaelblackwoodproductions.com/lit_arendt.php However, the distributor has placed a number of contractual restrictions on the use of the title, including disallowing ILL AND not allowing use outside "the premises of the purchasing institutions". These restrictions may have discouraged libraries besides York from acquiring this title, as they seemingly forbid circulation of the film. To address another of your questions, a good overview of past and recent ILL of media items can be found in: Barbara J. Bergman. "Making the Most of Your Video Collection: Trends in Patron Access and Resource Sharing." Library Trends 58.3 (2010): 335-348. http://dx.doi.org/10.1353/lib.0.0096. Hope this helps!

Dear Film Lovers, Hannah Arendt On Walter Benjamin 65 minutes, b&w I checked this is on World Cat. York University in Ontario is the only who has it. I am curious, is it normal for only one institution out a world-wide network to own an item dvd,vhs, etc.? Or, maybe it never was entered into the database? So, how do you get to watch it? Also, I just want to confirm: In general, library institutions are not particularly keen on doing ILL for media for obvious reasons, right? Much appreciation for your help.

Hi Lisa No Hannah on Film here, unfortunately. Gary The only two appearances of Arendt on film (at least US film) that I know of are: A long-out-of-distribution doc entitled The Exiles. A Michael Blackwood filmed lecture by Arendt on Walter Benjamin good luck!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
