Just because something is out of print does not mean it is rare, at least in
library terms. Library Special Collections would be huge if that were so.
But at least now I know you weren't speaking legally.

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.
