Subject: [Videolib] PC-only DVDs

We were looking to replace our VHS copies of the Mosby Nursing
Skills series, from Elsevier, but the 24 titles are now only available on 3
DVDs, and the DVDs will only operate on a PC.
On the one hand, this arrangement limits how many patrons can acess
any episode at one time, and on the other hand, it restricts our playback
options in the classroom.
Does anyone know the reasoning behind this? We've phoned Elsevier
and been told there aren't other options.

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.
