The Teaching Company now offers many of their courses on DVD as well as
audio formats. I've received a few requests for these but wonder if
there's any point-are they very visual, or just people talking at
lecterns???

Subject: [Videolib] lending video and film

=20

Perhaps you've been discussing this of late and I missed it,

but here goes...

=20

Has anyone changed their NO ILL LENDING policy for videos

and film to a lending policy?

And if so, why?

=20

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

=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.

=20

Any comments?
