We are still carrying VHS tapes and they still circulate a lot. We are =
lucky because people keep donating them. I don't want to get rid of them =
because many patrons still like to borrow them. It is so much easier and =
cheaper to repair VHS then DVD's. Replacing damage DVD's is really hard =

Mike,

Videos continue to circulate at a fairly steady pace in 7 of our 8
branches. While we are not purchasing videos, patrons are donating them
left and right--presumably because they are replacing them with DVD's or
their kids have outgrown the cartoons.=20

ALA's decision to exclude VHS appears to me to be a response to the fact
the VHS is a dying media. It is getting more and more difficult to find
VHS supplies from our vendors. But, given that libraries still carry
videos, I think that they should consider addressing them.

I'm curious though. How many of your libraries still have VHS
collections? Are you (the powers that be) considering dumping the
collection? If your library doesn't carry VHS but did at 1 time, how
long ago did you get rid of your VHS collection?

report?

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

http://www.ala.org/2007state

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.
