Good for you, Gary. Responsibility for one's behavior shouldn't be limited
to the "common man." Why should bigwigs be given special treatment?

For lost or "permanently misplaced" items, we charge retail cost of
replacement...faculty, grad student instructors, Nobel laureates, doesn't
matter. I'm a bit more reluctant to charge for damaged materials, since
the majority of use outside of the MRC is in classrooms on this
campus...can't really blame faculty for badly maintained equipment on
campus.

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,

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.
