Don't take this in the wrong way, but who has time? Or the money to pay
staff to do this? We can't keep up with processing and cataloging as it
is - if I told our Tech Services area that I wanted them to preview
everything to make sure it worked, I'd be run out of town on a rail.

Hello all,
just a quick question for this happy Friday: Who in your library
previews your videos (meaning quaily control after you have purchased,
not evailuate for possible purchase)? Here it has been tradionally done
by our Media Circulation department, but our dean just informed my boss
that he does not want us previewing materials any more. I, in the hope
of providing a convincing argument against this new policy, would like
to get a handle on how other libraries do what I think is a necessary
part of our job thanks jhs.
