We have a small number of these and they seem to be quite popular. We
conducted a survey and 99% were favorable. I imagine we will be purchasing
more.

Subject: [Videolib] Not sure if this is the right place


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.
