I'm wondering if video librarians are purchasing PBS home video versions
or if they're purchasing from PBS Teacher Source. PBS policy for home
videos reads that "customer has the right to exhibit the programs to a
limited number of viewers, only in a direct face-to-face teaching
situation as an internal part of the systematic educational program.
Customer may also loan PBS Home Video Programs to others for viewing in
their perspective homes." If you call Teacher Source they say libraries
have to purchase from them at higher prices.
