Regis first subscribed to Symptom in 2011, after a free trial. As you might expect, the site is used mainly by our nursing school. When it came time to renew the subscription, I talked with the group who originally recommended the purchase and they were all in favor of renewing. My only gripe with administering the site is that Symptom doesn't provide a way to measure usage statistics. I can't really critique the content because health care is way out of my comfort range, but the site has been reliable and I don't remember ever fielding a complaint.
Get your interested faculty on board with a free trial and then set the trial up for a time period where faculty have the time to put the site through its paces. If you have any other questions, email me.

Please let me know (on- or off-list) if you are familiar with this resource and are willing to tell me what you think about it! Thanks! Sincerely, Andy Horbal Head of Learning Commons 1101 McKeldin Library 7649 Library Ln. University of Maryland College Park, MD 20742 (301) 405-9227 ahor...@umd.edu<mailto:ahor...@umd.edu>
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.
