DVD is nice, cheap, and convenient, particulary for teaching, but it
is absolutely no substitute for seeing films as they were originally
intended to be seen--on film.

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.
