We only deal with companies that do not charge for previews, this
includes shipping & handling. Some will charge a $15.00 fee, and we
just have the department order and pay the fee, preview the program,
send it back, and if they want to purchase, we then will purchase for
them. Companies like Films Media Group, Bullfrog, Filmakers Library,
etc. will send new copies of programs for preview at no charge, and then
if the department likes it we just issue a PO. Talk to the film rep, you
can usually negotiate no S&H fees. =20

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
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,

Beth Burleigh
