[Videolib] Media booking systems - recommendations?

Thu, 08 Feb 2007 16:40:34 -0800

Good afternoon VideoLib,

We are looking into automating our library's media (video/dvd/film) booking
system. We are interested in knowing what systems/software other libraries are
using for their media bookings. We do bookings for in-house and ILL. Our A/V
dept uses WebCheckout http://www.onshored.com/booking.htm for equipment
bookings but the software seems less than ideal for media bookings. We'd be
grateful for any comments, recommendations, or advice we receive.

Thank-you in advance,

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.
