have any academic video librarians out there considered the possiblility of aligning their collections and themselves (ok, I know they aren't OUR collections, but it feels that way after a few, um, decades) with the film departments of their schools, instead of with the Library?
Are there any colleges or universities whose cinema studies programs have independent video collections?

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.
