At University of Washington, the UW Libraries Media Center varies between
12-14% of *system-wide* circulation (ie. around 25 libary branches/units).
Within Odegaard Undergraduate Library, where the Media Center is located,
the Media Center usually accounts for a little over 50% of circulation for
the building.

We are just starting our second year of circulating videos and dvds. Last year we average 5.6 percent of the total. This academic year things are increasing and I'd like to know what I might be in for. Thanks
