HI Karen, I wrote an article for Library Journal, in the AV supplement a
couple of years ago that dealt with evaluation of various disc
cleaner/repair units. I had a chart that broke out cost per disc from the
Disc Go Pod, Eco (RTI), Azura-disc, JFJ machine and other. I think it was
in 2004 or 05 - costs per disc haven't changed. I'm sorry, I don't have the
article right at hand - you can look it up on Infotrack, Ebscohost,
ProQuest. It will give you the information your director wants.

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.
