Some of our collection management librarians are still reluctant to
purchase DVDs from educational suppliers if they are more expensive and
do not offer additional content. We are purchasing DVDs for feature
films, DVDs of educational/documentary films if additional content is
available, and VHS if that is the only format available or if requested
by the user.
We try to purchase DVDs instead of VHS from non-US sources whenever
possible--more of our users have all-region DVD players than PAL vcrs.
