It is interesting that several companies that distribute theatrical
films on DVD prefer to send them on VHS because it is much more
reliable. I believe VHS will live a long time - just as 16 mm films
continue to be shown- Steve Fesenmaier, WV Jewish Film Festival, WV

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.
