Ours are 24:1, but then all of our library student computers have DVD rom =
drives, headphones, and players in them. If you want VCR TV units, then =
it would be more like 100:1

A question for those of you in academic libraries: what is your ratio =20
of students to video viewing stations? For example, College X has =20
2,350 students and 10 viewing stations, a ratio of 235:1.

Our library has only been providing access to video materials for a =20
few months now and we are finding that we have fewer viewing stations =20
than we need. I'm just trying to get a sense of what would actually =20
be adequate. If you don't want to do the math and just want to =20
provide me with the raw numbers, that's just dandy, too. You're also =20
welcome to contact me off-list about this.

Thanks,

Matt
