They are in a classroom format, but some do offer additional graphics. I
purchased some that do have a visual element on DVD and stayed with audio on
the others. The sets on human anatomy, impressionism, particle physics,
mythology and astronomy have been very popular and always seem to have a
holds queue.

Subject: [Videolib] Great Courses on DVD

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


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.

Only one of the 35 libraries who are up and running so far

has offered to lend.


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.


Any comments?
