I'd really appreciate input from any libraries regarding their
video/dvd loan policies. Here are my questions:
1. How long is your loan period for videos/dvds?
2. How many videos/dvds can a patron check out?
3. Do you have different loan rules for different categories of patrons?
4. Academic libraries: do you have different loan rules for faculty?

I am in a situation where my predecessors created policies and then
regularly violated them. As a result, the current staff are seen as
"bad guys" for trying to adhere to the rules. We do make exceptions
in extreme cases and try to be fair. And we have lengthened our loan
periods for faculty to better meet their needs. I'd really like to
see what other libraries are doing loan policy-wise and I appreciate
any input.

Email me off the list and I will consolidate the answers and post.

Thanks!
