At my public library, rather than destroy the codes, we're thinking about occasionally giving these away to patrons via random drawings on Facebook and Twitter, maybe once each month in bundles of 5 or 10 titles. Winners would have to come to the library in person to pick up the actual paper slips. Assuming state and local laws and Facebook terms of service allow this, would this be a good idea? -Mike

But now as I'm doing my annual order of the Academy Award nominated films DVD purchasesŠ I am seeing UltraViolet and/or a digital copy also being bundled for a large number to titles. In some cases it appears to be the only way to get the standard DVD. I'm curious (but not yellow - a reference to my earlier post) what other video librarians are doing about UltraViolet and digital copies being bundled with DVDs How are you handling this change in distribution? (Sorry, I am not interested in Blu-Ray discussion, just digital copy and UltraViolet) Thanx for your thoughts. -deg deg farrelly, ShareStream Administrator/Media Librarian Arizona State University Libraries Hayden Library C1H1 P.O.
