Thanks, Val, for mentioning The Girls Project. Jean, we've recently launched this new initiative focused on young women's lives around the world. It's at www.wmm.com/girlsproject. You'll find a complete listing of the films in the collection as well as study guides for the films and other resources. "5 Girls" in particular might work for you.

Feel free to email off list if you have any questions about it.

Maurine:

My husband bought a JVC 32 inch screen TV and a JVC VCR/DVD combo player for
us at Christmas. As it turned out, the TV and the player were NOT
compatible. The VCR and DVD components (as far as I can tell) required
separate connectivity to the TV. The TV could accept the DVD portion, but
not the VCR. There was no place to hook up the video from the VCR so while
the TV had sound, it had no picture when playing VHS tapes. The only way I
found to play VHS was to hook up our OLD player to the front end inputs.

I sent my husband to Radioshack to get a coaxial cable to see if that would
work. He brought back gold A/V cable because the clerk at the store told
him that co-ax cable is hardly used anymore.

So....the moral of the story is: 1) make sure the monitor and BOTH
components of the player are compatible, and 2) go to the store yourself....

Subject: [Videolib] Dvd/VCR players

Hello Videolibbers:

We are investigating players for our library, and have a few questions.

Does anyone have experience with combo VCR/DVD players? We want to know if
a video or a dvd gets jammed in it, does the other function still work? Or
if one breaks down, do they both break down?

Is it better to buy single use players to connect to a monitor?
If you mix brands of players and monitors, what kinds of issues arise about
connecting them together?

What are the issues that arise when you allow patrons access to the players?
Do you have to nail down the remotes? Do instructions on use? Use some
kind of information/instruction sheet?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Hi. You were all so wonderful about my collection development question,
that I am thinking you might not mind helping me again.

I have a patron who wants to find a short video (feature or documentary) for
African American girls, 12-20, that stresses the importance of education.
She found "Dreams of Flying" for her Hispanic audience, and wants something
very similar for her African American girls.

Anybody have any brainy ideas?

Thanks a million,

Hi,

Please excuse cross-posting...

Can anyone recommend (or NOT recommend!) a specific machine that can be used to project videos and DVDs onto a "large" screen? The room we would be using it in seats approx 200 at the max (100 on one side of the room, 100 on the other). At some point also, we may be looking at the same unit to use with a computer. One thing to take in consideration--we don't have a lot of money (like under $1000) to spend. Are we being realistic in thinking we can find something? We borrowed a unit this summer from the school system (not sure of the brand), that could be hooked up to either a VCR or DVD player and was fairly easy to use, but cost in the vicinity of $5000 when new, and replacement bulbs are about $300. Thanks for any help you can provide...

Nadine,

There's no magic formula for choosing a machine, but there are many very important things to keep in mind. I think that, given your current circumstances, you should start your process by checking out the following link: http://www.projectorcentral.com/buyers_guide.htm Anything that I would try to explain will be covered in this site.

Hi all!

This is a periodic reminder to videolib subscribers that there are actually TWO (count em'!) useful lists sponsored by the ALA Video Round Table: Videolib (which you know about because you're getting this message) and VIDEONEWS. The latter list was established as a new product and services bulletin board. I find it a very useful means of getting info about interesting new titles posted by film/video distributors and producers. Posting to videonews is free to subscribers (pls note that items posted to the list do not necessarily imply endorsement by VRT or the University of California Berkeley [which hosts the list])

To subscribe, use the form at http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/videonews Gary Handman Director Media Resources Center Moffitt Library UC Berkeley ghandman@library.berkeley.edu http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC

Hi, Jean Penn,

Bullfrog Films offers a title featuring a young woman, Rosie, who is a young mother in Jamaica, but wants to further her education. It's called "The Story of Rosie" from the series "Turning Sixteen." Might be helpful for your patron at the library.

http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/t162.html

There's also a title "God Among the Children" that documents the work of The Boston Ten Point Coalition to mobilize the community around issues affecting African-American and Latino youth--especially those at risk from violence, drug abuse and other destructive behavior. Not specifically African American girls only, but it may shed some light on the issues in the community. Education is the goal, as the members of the Coalition aim to "walk the walk and talk the talk" with alienated and disaffected young people.

http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/lsgac.html

If you would like to preview these two for purchase evaluation, contact me.

Best regards, Elizabeth Stanley Bullfrog Films 800-543-3764
