I wonder if folks would be willing to share their opinions on the future
of video collections/av collections in academic libraries? How do you
see the streaming of video and audio impacting collections?

Quite a few vendors are offering multiple user access licenses and
operations like Overdrive are becoming more and more popular. Penny for
your thoughts.

Thanks

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.
