An added note about my public performance rights question:

We have had an increasing number of groups on campus who want to use =
library DVDs to present public showings of films--mainly features. =
(Something that rarely happened with the VHS collection.) We have a small =
auditorium in the library that is equipped to show video. Some groups =
using that space want to "show movies," and some groups just want to check =
out our DVDs and show them at other locations on campus. Our media =
collection DOES circulate, so that is not the problem. Is the appropriate =
answer to public performance, "NO WAY IN H*%$!" Do I need to write and =
distribute a policy that lays down the law about public performance of =
video?

--=__Part597D1483.0__=-- 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.
