[Videolib] Nothing about videos in ALA's State of Libraries report?

ALA has released its "2007 State of America's Libraries" report:


While DVD circulation has been one of the fastest growing areas at my public
library, the report does not appear to mention video collections or services.

Considering recent stats or trends at your library, do you think videos
should be mentioned in the 2008 report?

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.
