Re: Ratio of missing/broken/outdated videos to collection?

We are a library of safety videos available for checkout for Texas employers. When safety standards are updated or created, our collection must be re-evaluated by our consultants.

This may not be much of a problem for public or academic (where one presumes that students learn to evaluate their sources) media libraries. Outdated probably only refers to specialty media libraries like TWCC.

No, we don't have any ratios about outdated videos, largely because it would be difficult, I think, to define "outdated". Do you mean programs that contain inaccurate information, or do you include things that just LOOK old?
