[Videolib] An offer you can't refuse???? from UC Berkeley

Hi all

As most of you know by know, the University of California Center for Media
and Independent Learning media operation has lamentably
folded. (Fortunately, many of the newest and most interesting titles have
been picked up by a new(ish) company, Berkeley Media
[http://www.berkeleymedia.com/] run by the redoubtable Dan Bickley, former
head of CMIL's operation)

So, in its death throes, CMIL graciously offered to unload a very large
chunk of remaining stock on me--all videotape. We've now culled through
what we want. We've also let Berkeley PL take what they want. After the
cull, we still have 13 (count em'!!!) boxes of CMIL titles on our
hands. I'd really hate to send this to the recyclers' mill...

We're willing to ship the works to whomever is willing to: a) pick up the
shipping charges b) take the whole 13 boxes off our hands

In the best of possible worlds, I'd prepare a roster of titles for your
consideration...unfortunately, we just don't have the staff. I can tell
you, though, that there's still a lot of good stuff in this lot.

If you're unfamiliar with the CMIL catalog, there's a ghostly web site
still up at http://ucmedia.berkeley.edu/

Let me know...
