Jim,

=20

What kind of library are you (academic, public, special, school,

system/other)?

Public

=20

1) How many libraries own a disc repair/cleaning machine and what

brand is it?

RTI Eco-Master 50 disc cleaner

=20

2) Do you have an estimate of how many discs per week/month, etc. you

repair?

About 400-450 per week =20

=20

3) Do you offer the service to other businesses in your area (for

example,we repair DVDs for 2 local video stores on a weekly basis)?

No (we're busy enough!)

=20

4) Do you offer the service to your patrons? Who performs this

service in your library (we have trained a page/custodian to operate the

machines)?

No (ditto)

=20

5) If you don't have a machine now, do you plan to get one in the

future? If you don't have a machine now, do you forsee a use for one or
too

much trouble to bother?

=20

=20

6) How large is your DVD and CD music, CD audio collections (volumes)

DVD: 98,000 CD: 109,000 CD audiobook: 27,000

=20

=20

7) If you don't own a machine, have you considered (or do you now)

outsourcing repair/cleaning? - If now, who do you use?

=20

=20

Comments: Our Tech Services staff took on this job last year. It's
kind of like doing laundry - you check the cleaner and water levels,
load it, choose your wash cycle and check back again when it's done.
It's a bit noisy so we have it on our delivery dock. So far, the
machine has held up pretty well. (I'm knocking on wood right now!) =20

Our public services staff appreciates that we can extend the life
of discs rather than just deleting them. The machine is expensive but
is gradually paying for itself.
