I know that this is a video format list, but as many of us are involved
with multiple non-print formats, I thought I'd ask my question here, as
I'd probably get more response than if I posted to Autocat.

We just bought some Playaway digital audio books to try out for
circulation. Have any of you started circulating these or similar
self-contained audio books with players? If so, what type of response
have you gotten from patrons and/or staff? From a cataloging
perspective I don't think it will be much different, but we'd appreciate
any feedback given.

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.
