We are currently stocking three Da Vinci Code related titles in DVD, and 1

Exposing the DaVinci code
Beyond the Da Vinci code
Secrets of the widow's son : the mysteries surrounding the sequel to The Da
Vinci code
Cracking the Da Vinci code :bthe unauthorized guide to the facts behind Dan
Brown's bestselling novel / Simon Cox.

I expect many more titles to become available as the movie sweeps the
nation. This could become as big a phenomenon for us as Michael Jackson
contretemps or even video biographies of Jesus. I am strongly considering
seeking catalogers other than myself to plow through this stuff. It just
makes me itchy.

Sarah & others...

We also have 'Decoded', plus another, 'Unlocking Da Vinci's Code'. Both
titles have been extremely popular, though I have no plans to purchase
others, based on luke warm reviews on most of them, but would consider if
customers were to request them.

I have my ticket for opening night already, but I am curious-
How many Da Vinci Code related videos are your libraries purchasing? Our
library has most of the books already, but only Da Vinci Code Decoded in DVD
(so far!)

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.
