I'm interested in finding out how different library systems deal with
distributing videos throughout their system. Our county system makes video
"packets" which rotate from branch to branch every other month. Each packet is
approximately the same size, and the number of packets a branch receives is
dependent upon the size of that branch. With this method, the smaller branches
aren't stuck with the same small video collection. It's a good idea, but it's
a cumbersome system. How do other libraries handle this situation?
