Summer project time:
Our dept. has recorded breaking news stories, presidential press conferences, etc. over the past decade. These tapes are on VHS, and are not cataloged in the collection.
I would like to make them available to our students and faculty, by transferring them to DVD and cataloging them.
Can I copy them?
Can I catalog them?
thanks for your input--and happy summer!

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.
