We too have videos dating back to 1978 that are still functioning quite well. Weeding should probably focus more on customer usage as opposed to shelf life.

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.

Thanks,
