Hi Videolib,

As the question has been raised here, could I ask any academic
librarians:

1) does your university/college/school do interlibrary loan of media
(vhs, dvd, 16mm, cd-rom, etc.)?

We lend videos only to our consortium (8 other universities)

2) about how many requests per semester do you get?

We get more than 100 request per semester. We have a nice collection
compared to the other 8 colleges

3) about how many requests do you make per semester?

Maybe 20 request to other colleges of the same consortium

We have several videos that are limited used meaning only for our university
fac/staf/students. Why? Because the price of some limitations with
copyright. DVD are very fragile unfortunately, we can't replace a $400 DVD
that somebody from other college damaged and we did not notice when came
back

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.
