News release about Halifax & Dalhousie University libraries (Nova Scotia, Canada) partnering to purchase unique titles from video store before it closes. Having visited the Dalhousie library, I'm especially impressed because the library's film collection was fairly minimal. Making a (Video) Difference: Dal and Halifax Public Libraries team up to purchase film collection http://www.dal.ca/news/2016/08/16/making-a--video--difference--dal-and-halifax-public-libraries-te.html

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.
