Good Morning,
The faculty at our college sometimes wish to preview a video or DVD before =
purchasing. This is especially true with nursing videos. This can be =
costly because if the video is not purchased we are to pay for the =
shipping and handling both ways and sometimes it is a percentage of the =
cost of the video. It eats away at our budget to purchase.
=20
We have thought about ILL because we do ILL with our videos. Another idea =
was to set up a special fund. We are also considering charging the =
departments. Has anyone done any of these idea and have any of these =
worked?
=20
We were wondering how other universities handle previewing of videos or =
DVDs for their faculty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.=20

Thanks,
