Harpo shut down 100% in Dec. 2015. A small number of employees relocated to LA
and now work for OWN Productions (or maybe it is Programming) located in The
Lot in West Hollywood, California. I no longer have a contact there. Good luck.

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
