Dear Videolibbers,

Does anyone out there have a specific reason why their college or
university lends, or does not lend, its media materials to other

At the University of North Texas, we are currently deciding wether to
allow other academic institutions to borrow from our collection, or to
continue the practice of lending to only other academic libraries in
state. We are hesitant to allow wider borrowing privileges since so
other colleges and universities do not lend their media materials to
other schools.

Please share with us the pros and cons-good experiences or bad- that
your media center has experienced when allowing other institutions to
borrow from your collection.
