There was an interesting article in last Sunday's paper by Charles Pillar of the Los Angeles Times about the impermanence of digital formats and storage methods...

It's worth a read for those of us who work with film and video collections.

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.
