Joanna:
I agree with putting the note in a MARC 540 field, and a note on the case,
but I would say
that your choice of wording is too unspecific. What is personal use?
I would rather see you use terms relative to educational use, like:
Home use only
Some use, Not for classroom use

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.
