In the last couple of issues of Video Librarian, Randy has had reviews
of a few titles, and the titles received good reviews. My concern with
them is how many people would really check them out.

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.

Any comments?
