Perhaps you've been discussing this of late and I missed it,
but here goes...
Has anyone changed their NO ILL LENDING policy for videos
and film to a lending policy?
And if so, why?
We just went live with INN-Reach - an Innovative based consortial
borrowing system for a potential of 800 libraries including
public, academic, medical, and other special libraries.=20
Only one of the 35 libraries who are up and running so far
has offered to lend.=20
Increasing circulation figures for expensive educational
films with low circulation would seem like a plus.
Making expensive items available to libraries that can't
purchase them seems like another.
Borrowing Blockbuster features seems like a negative.
Lending older format items to libraries who still have playing
equipment for laser disks, 16mm film, seems like another.
