As a public librarian who used to toil in that trench, I can say that
advocacy on behalf of patrons looking beyond mass-market is the key role
that we play, and is the one that is most in jeopardy as we move on and
as administrations change. The lure of huge circ is obscuring the sun
in system after system. The biggest shift in emphasis from the 16mm
days to now is that group use is rarely considered. Most emphasis is on
the individual home using patron. If a group (school, club, church,
etc.) can't find it in a rental store, where else is there if libraries
are de-emphasizing the advance booking of titles, and the dollars spent
on public performance collections is shrinking at the same time.

Look...I ain't a public librarian, so I can't really talk about life in
the trenches there...BUT: I will say even in academe, if you don't have
someone on board to: buy the unique and enlightening stuff, publicize
the obscure and wonderful, serve as viewers' advisory, act as advocate
for quality programming, make sure the bibliographic access is
effective, all that's ever gonna get checked out is Dumb and Dumber.
The public--academic and otherwise--often doesn't know what it doesn't
know. The Hollywood glitz gets the publicity--THAT they know. All the
other stuff often falls off the public radar. It's our job to build
collections that serve the broad base of need and potential need and to
make sure our users are aware of what's available and why it's cool and
important. =20

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?
