At UC San Diego we are net lenders by far. Sometimes it feels like we
are supplying the nation. Still, I am a firm believer in ILL' ing media.
We have had very little trouble w/ any of the standard ILL issues;
conflicts over available, late returns, lost, damaged...etc. See answers below

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

dvd's & vhs ( with some restrictions ) No 16mm

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

Just a ballpark. 200+ -

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

This is ILL's area, but maybe 20+ -

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.
