Regarding educational titles on DVD: They are beginning to be released.
I agree that VHS is not disappearing any time soon. And as much as
librarians dislike the idea, we are all likely to be supporting DVD and
VHS simultaneously. I still have 3/4" U-matic in my collection. That
brings our video formats to four: 3/4", VHS, laserdisc, and DVD. That's
a fact of life for a college or university library. I imagine that public
libraries will be supporting VHS and DVD for many year to come as well.
Instead of "future DVD? Naaa," I say "digital distribution? Naaa." For
lots of reasons, not just intellectual property. -- Kris
