Please excuse any duplicate messages. This survey was recently handed out
to registrants of the CCUMC conference in Denton, Texas as well as the OLAC
conference in Seattle. If you know your library has already responded,
please do not respond again.

However, if you haven't done so, could you or someone else in your library
take a few minutes to reply by email to the following questions? Our media
collections have recently been moved into the library. The questions
being raised are Why treat these collections any differently from
books? Shouldn't they be in open stacks and have the same library policies
applied to them as for everything else? This survey is an attempt to find
out what is being done in other academic libraries who house media and
music collections. I will be happy to send a compilation of all the
results to the list once they have been tallied

Thanks very much for your time.
