Briefly, the University of Colorado at Boulder is looking at the value of
and processes for combining a video/DVD collection of 3,700 titles with the
University Library collection of 4,500 titles. The former is cataloged
using Medianet (, and
the latter uses Innovative Interfaces (III).

Two questions:

Do you know or can you point me to references that speak to associated
costs for cataloging EACH of the 3,700 titles in III?

Do you have suggestions, timelines or anecdotes to share concerning the
politics and procedures for melding collections belonging to two quite
different kinds of departments?
