We have about 50 titles on Playaways, with multiple copies here at the =
central library and also some distribution throughout the system. They =
have been popular enough to warrent buying more, but they haven't killed =
the demand for CDs or cassettes (we also have downloadable audiobooks at =
our website). We issue a fresh battery with each at checkout, but ask if =
the patron needs headphones - if they already have headphones of their =
own, we encourage them to use them but will provide a new set if they =
want.
There may be a problem with the players themselves however - I have =
heard numerous complaints (including from patrons who I know are =
techno-saavy) that sometimes the player won't go beyond a certain point =
in the book, or else won't start at the beginning, and this after =
following all of the instructions that are printed inside the case. =
Until someone invents an inspection machine for these, or someone on =
staff has the time to sit down and listen to an entire book, we have to =
take their word for it.

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.
