Dear Gary, Sad to hear that printed materials are not important, but it's funny because individuals insist on them. I've always liked to add 2000+ pages of original documents about the film on my DVDs but you can't do that on Blu-Ray since few people have that for their computers.
To be fair to Rachel, she does cover paying: 4. Be prepared to process orders in any way that is convenient for your customers – including check, purchase order, credit card. If you make it hard to buy or use your film, people will lose patience and not ask for help.

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.
