They are awesome. They do everything for us and have reduced our
turnaround time significantly. They give us a sample of a DVD cover and
ask us where to place the labels and everything. We get the videos out
in half the time. There are not discounts for videos (as you would see
with BandT and Amazon), but the customer service is excellent and the
availability is excellent.

Let me know if you want more detail, but I would highly recommend

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.
