Dear Videolibbers,

perhaps most of you will already know: The most comprehensive video
database worldwide, mainly of US libraries, and one of the most
important search tools for videos and DVD can now be used for free
http://www.worldcat.org/
Videos can be selected from the list of results. You may also enter
original title and director's name into the search field (ti:original
title au:director) but avoid articles. This is a great offer to those
who could not yet afford an account to this important catalogue (at
least outside the US).

with kind regards
Peter Delin

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.
