Hello,

I'm sure this question has come up before.

I am trying to convince my institution to create an internal "Find
Media" searchable database that will interact with our current library
on-line cataloging system -- not very different from how to "Find a
Book" or "Find an Article."

I think several years ago, some of you shared your internal search
database with the list.
Would you mind contacting me off-line so I can see some examples?

Here are two that I'm familiar with:

University of Maryland Digital Films:
http://www.lib.umd.edu/dcr/collections.html

Trexler Library Home Page: http://www.muhlenberg.edu/library/ >
Finding Media > Videos >
http://www.muhlenberg.edu/library/media/videos.html

Others?

Thanks in advance.

Best,
