This may have been discussed before, if so, I'm sorry for asking again!
And, sorry for any cross posting.
We are trying to set up a list of default prices for out of print
audiovisual materials. My question, what does everyone else do? Our music
compact disc collection is completely eclectic - we buy anything. Our book
on cassette collection ranges from 2 cassette abridgements to 24 tape or
more unabridged titles. Our videos are 10% feature films, the rest
children's or information/education. I very seldom purchase a single tape
title for more than $80. Our CD-ROM collections are generally geared to
home use, rather than business, so we don't get programs such as Office, or
Lotus, etc., to lend out. The question has also been raised about just
having a set price, so people do not have to hunt down a title to determine
if it is in print or not. Does anyone do this? If you have a page of this
in your policy manual that you could fax, that would be fine, too. Thank
you so much in advance! Everyone is so helpful on this list!
