Dear Monique,

I can't speak for Lori as to the differences between her database and ours,
but I can succinctly summarize what's available on the Video Librarian Plus!
site: over 14,000 reviews searchable by a wide range of fields, a database
of over 1,000 VHS/DVD distributors, a new release calendar with pre-pub
linked reviews (currently extending into August), an exclusive bi-weekly
collection development column highlighting upcoming titles, extended news
briefs on...okay, I said succinct :)--there's more info at the site
( Of course, there is a cost involved--$99 (a bit
higher for those who want IP address range access)--but we think that's
pretty reasonable considering that the subscription also includes the print
magazine with 200 reviews per issue.
