Hi Everyone, A faculty member wants to borrow 10 DVD and VHS titles for the fall semester, for use at our L.A. campus. We've never had a request like this before, as the program is relatively new. I don't like the idea of 1. tying up stuff for an entire semester (usual length of loans to our faculty is 2 weeks) 2. shipping this stuff across the country Some of these titles could be leased from Swank, but if we set that precedent, it could run into big bucks! What do you all do/think? thanks, Maureen
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.
