[Videolib] When the Levees Broke PPR

Sorry, I lost the original thread for this topic.

I received a response
about PPR for Spike Lee's When the Levees Broke. The full documentary on DVD
is available for free from Teachers College at Columbia College as part of
their "Teaching the Levees" curriculum:


The project manager at Teachers College, Maureen Grolnick, says HBO has
agreed to allow public libraries, as well as other community and education
groups, to show When the Levees Broke to the public, as long as it is shown
as a part of the Teaching the Levees curriculum, which should be available
in late summer 2007.

Maureen says permission for any other uses or screenings
not related to the curriculum should be requested directly from HBO.

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.
