I won't say this on the listserv, but I would send our order to a vendor
who could probably obtain it at the retail price--but sometimes PBS will
cancel the orders and say direct only......for example, MOST of the
Frontline programs can be supplied by this vendor, but occasionally PBS
demands direct orders for some selected titles....and I can't figure out
why.

um just to be evil, I am curious if there will be
a similtanous retail release at a much lower price
and suppossing it were available on say Amazon for
$99.95 would some or most of you try to buy it that way
and save or buy from PBS for the extra's

Just wondering

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.
