Chris Lewis, Jane Hutchison, and I have been working on a database of video titles for which we have conducted searches for duplication under Section 108.
We presented the project at ALA in Orlando last month, and will be presenting on the project at the National Media Market in October. The database is openly available for others to view now. http://section108video.com We envision this as a crowd-sourced database, and are looking for a couple participants to beta test. Preferably we would like to invite in someone who has already conducted searches and would be willing to enter their data into the database, or someone who is ready to start and would use the database as their record keeping. There are still a few details to be worked out on the db, so beta testers will really benefit the project. If you are interested in participating please contact me directly (not on the list) and we will go from there. Thank you. deg farrelly Media Librarian Arizona State University deg.farre...@asu.edu 602.332.3103 On Fri, Jul 22, 2016 at 12:50 PM, Meghann Matwichuk <mtw...@udel.edu> wrote: >>Would any of you be willing to share some of your procedures >>for working with creating replacement copies for OOP VHS?

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.
