> Hi all,
> As the self-appointed guardian of all "obsolete" formats, I have acheived a victory of sorts in getting the go-ahead for a cleaning and repair project for our collection of about 100 16mm films. All quite brittle, and dirty, and old.
> Does anyone out there know about how much and what kind of supplies I need to request? We will be doing the cleaning and repair by hand.
> I'd appreciate any help. Just because I want to save old formats, doesn't mean I have any practical idea how to go about it!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
