We've utilized Choice for over 30 years, and it's a fantastic tool for faculty 
selection of relevant print books/ebooks.  It does include reviews of web 
resources, as well.  However, Choice does not get into film *at all,* other 
than monographic print resources for film studies.  My understanding of RCL is 
that it's sort of an extension of Choice in the sense that it also focuses on 
vital core print & electronic items for undergraduate collections but does not 
include films.

Does anyone on the list have access to this database?

To what degree does it cover film/video/media?  If at all.

Appreciate comments on RCL sent to the list.
