Re: [Videolib] lending video and film

We at USF len= d within the IntraLibrary system of libraries to faculty only.

Jerry Notaro, USF St. Petersburg

Perhaps you've been discussing this of late and I missed it,
but here goes...

Has anyone changed their NO ILL LENDING policy fo= r 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.
Only one of the 35 libraries who are up and running so far
has offered to lend.

Increasing circulation figures for expensive educ= ational
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.

Any comments?
