Frank --

We haven't used any bulk repair services as of yet but I'm looking into it.
What kind of volume do you send out, with what frequency, and how are the
prices? Is it effective? Do you find that certain titles are beyond repair
(i.e., chipped, cracked, or already resurfaced too many times)? Any info
would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Subject: RE: [Videolib] Wherefore video?

So let's say that VHS does disappear in a year of so and we are all obliged
to buy DVD. Bad for us, good for the resellers. We've had a growing number
of DVDs in our collection for 3 or 4 years now and we've been buying DVD
whenever possible. On a day to day level my observation is that DVDs are
much more vulnerable to damage by user mishandling than VHS was which leads
to the need to eventually replace the title.


Our collection circulates freely to our campus community (no ILL yet) and
we see lots of frustration on the part of users who get into a film only to
find it start skipping, freezing or otherwise become unwatchable because the
disk has been mishandled. I regularly send batches of disks to a company
here in Washington state called Aural Tech for resurfacing. It's lots
cheaper than replacing the disk but it is a hassle.


Though we include a printed form in both our DVD and VHS cases so that users
can report problems it seems most people don't unless something significant
is wrong with it.


Frankly we've had a bit of backlash on the part of selectors who have begun
specifying VHS instead of DVD - though this runs counter to our standing
policy.
