There's a catalog for such PPR's ? This is one aspect of video librarianship
that has always confused me - the tape box usually says who distributed it,
but if this is not usually the same person/company who holds the rights, how
do you all determine who to contact? Or *is* it usually the distributor? If
there are catalogs, where do I get them? Also, I hear (I think) Jessica say
that PPR is almost always NOT available for feature films - but it *is*
available for "Bowling"? Why? It's a documentary?

Man, I've been doing this almost three years, and I still have questions
almost *every* day....That's a good thing, it means I'm still challenged...
