So, we let them check out however many items they want, for as long as
they want and they can give them back or not..as they want. But we are
working on slowly changing this to something more library like and
reasonable to allow broader access to more people.

Subject: Circulation of AV materials to faculty
I am new to this list. I know there was a discussion about this
sometime ago. Since I need documentation to present to the library
administration, would you please post your ideas again about the check
out duration of audiovisual materials to the faculty in your
institution? We have been checking out these materials to the faculty
for a whole semester and we are faced with many items not returned. I
need some information on how long do you let your faculty to keep AV
materials, how many items do you let them to check out and if you have
any enforcement policy to charge them if the items are not returned.
Thank you for your help.

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.
