I'm leading a project called In Medias Res that is aiming to produce
a web-accessible database of performance videos, which we hope will
be as close to comprehensive as we can make it (at the moment we
probably have over 1000 records). It will encompass a broad variety
of performance genres. The project is much behind schedule, but
there's a glimmer of hope that we'll go live this summer. See

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.
