Subject: [Videolib] Replacement Fees in Academic Libraries?

Hello All,

A quick question for the academic librarians in the audience -- how do
you handle replacements of lost / damaged videos if you circulate to
students? Like most academic libraries, we have a number of very
expensive titles in our collection alongside the $15-$25 ones, and I
can't imagine charging a student full price replacement for these
several hundred dollar titles for an honest 'oops'... What seems to
work best? A flat replacement cost? Thanks in advance.

Best,

------_=_NextPart_001_01C74560.917A3198-- 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.
