Dear Sarah,
"Blanket" public performance licensing is really a patchwork of =
contracts with various film distributors, so it's not exactly =
one-stop-shopping, and not all of the major film distributors even offer =
it to the college market -- currently Criterion Pictures does, and Swank =
Motion Pictures does not. Also, if your school deals frequently with =
independent film producers, as we do at Middlebury, blanket licensing =
isn't going to help.=20
Best,
Patty

Subject: [Videolib] need help*blanket PPR policy?

Hi-

Do any of you at academic libraries have sort of "blanket" public =
performance policies or some set of criteria that you could share with =
me?

Or, does anyone have some information on why such a policy won't work?

=20

I need some rather urgent help in this area. We have lots of requests =
on our campus and a blanket policy is desired by some. (Jessica I know =
you can give me a good explanation of why that won't work, but I need =
some information before a meeting tomorrow.)

=20

As always, thanks in advance.

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.
