I hope that this is an appropriate query for the list.... In searching
the Internet for a particular foreign film this morning, I stumbled on a
site "Frederico's Foreign Film Club." We're a small academic library and I
am often unable to keep up with general collection development in the area
of foreign film while completing my other responsibilities. This "Film
Club" offers one title a month on automatic shipment of a pre-selected
title. Has anyone every used this particular service or any other similar
arrangements for general collection development? I know this may seem
unspeakable to those of you who are serious film buffs, but I can always use
a little help in this area! This is not a topic that VideoLib has addressed
in recent months..... any comments or suggestions in this area?!
Cheers (& thanks)!
