Some companies have online clips, but it's hard to track who has these and
who doesn't. Maybe one of you wonderful librarians has created a site
pointing to these?!?

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.

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

We were wondering how other universities handle previewing of videos or
DVDs for their faculty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
