Dear colleagues,

=20

As a new comer to this list, I'm sure you've addressed this issue
before. But I highly appreciate if you post your ideas again. One of our
problems is providing materials to faculty for their personal research.
We have purchased expensive materials in the past that have no relations
to the courses at the university. The problem is that when they leave
the university, we end up with expensive materials no one else use. What
is your policy? How far do you go providing materials for your faculty?

Farhad Moshiri,

AV Librarian

University of the Incarnate Word

San Antonio, TX

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.
