This was a fine series in its time, but I just withdrew the series a couple of months ago, mainly because of its copyright, but also because of low circulation.

Dear Video Experts,
I would like your opinion on this 13 volume set - should I weed it or not? I am considering it for weeding due to its copyright date and lack of circulation at my library.

This series is 18 years old, c1984, but is different than any other video my library has on the constitution. Each volume features panelists responding to hypothetical dilemmas and discussing how the constitution applies. This is why I am considering keeping it. However I am not sure that the legal arguments presented are still valid.

Does anyone have an opinion about this series?
