I for one ultimately end up with all copies of video catalogs that
arrive in the Library, regardless of who they were addressed to. So in
my opinion, one per library is just fine.

I am amazed how many companies send multiple copies to the library,
especially that ones using outdated data. I still get catalogs
addressed to my predecessor (retired 2000) and to Mankato State (name
changed about 10 years ago)...and may or may not get a copy that is
addressed to me.

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.
