Our health sciences library inherited about 600 health sciences videos, =

collection. Prior to this year, university librarians were unable to =
purchase AV at all, so we have no history to fall back on. In addition to =
policy & procedure manuals, I specifically need to get up-to-speed on =
university libraries and:
budget processes for media titles
processes used for acquisition
whether you preview titles or buy outright
backup copies
implementing streaming video
handling replacement costs
budgeting differently for the "big sets"=20
buying consortia of media librarians for better deals
No longer just a Videolib lurker,

= --=__PartE6C228EA.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.
