We still have several working laserdisc players and many of our laserdisc
titles have yet to be released on DVD so we are keeping ours. They are
openly available for browsing in the public area, unlike the rest of our
collection, and they do get a fair amount of use. They are almost never
used in class anymore though.

Please respond to

What are libraries doing with their
laser disc collections i.e., keeping, weeding,
dispersing, withdrawing?
