Jessica,
The state of Missouri just negotiated a deal with MPLC for its libraries
to get licensing at a very low rate. The only paperwork we have gotten
so far is a list of companies whose products you are supposed to be
legal to show. The agreement is in about 6 pt. print - very hard to
read. We have just signed up and I am wondering if we will get more
information.
When I worked in KS we had a contract with them and it was very
difficult to know what you were covered for.

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.
