Gerie, it depends on the series. I have been able to replace a few single volumes in some series but I usually end up purchasing another complete set. I replaced "Cosmos" by Sagan but not "Stephen Hawkings Universe" since people asked about the Sagan set but not too much interest in Hawkings. We can ILL volumes that are missing and do so.

I have replaced season one of "The Sopranos" three times plus I found used volumes for sale at the locate video stories. However, volume one is once again not available (patrons are keeping them!) and I have decided not to purchase another set. Since I originally purchased a set for one of our branch libraries I have purchases 5 sets of this series for my library plus another set in individual volumes from video stories! Enough is enough. I purchased it in DVD and hope that will last.

What do you all do when a video (part of a series) is damaged? It seems to me that it's difficult to buy just ONE video of a series, most vendors want us to buy the entire thing. (My example du jour is: one of my "Eyes on the prize" videos is damaged.)

I'd love to hear some ideas on what to do in this sort of situation.

Thank you ahead of time,
