Keely, we have videos in our stacks that are still playing back well after
18 years, so it's hard to generalize about shelf life.

Hi all,

We are trying to formulate some weeding guidelines centered on the average
shelf life of audiovisual materials. If anyone has established guidelines
they would be willing to share it would be most appreciated.
