We have quite a few campus productions in our collection. We are not the
repository of all campus produced non-print programs. We put these items in
our collection only if an instructor requests we do so for his/her students
to use. Once here, though, they tend to stay until they literally fall
apart. We provide as much cataloging information on them as we do on
anything else, provided the information is available. You would probably not
be surprised how much information the producers of these programs do not
collect. We have always felt that once we received these programs for use
in/with a class, they deserve the same treatment as anything else we add to
the collection to support classroom instruction.
Hope this helps,
