Dear Janette,

OnShored has just created a media booking module for WebCheckout. We just
purchased it and I am awaiting delivery of a beta test version of this
module sometime in the next few days.

If you would like a review of it after we've put it through some trials
please contact me.

Regards,
Marlene

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.
