Good morning,

I have been lurking for a couple of weeks on this list and am
interested in beginning to develop a good, but necessarily small
collectiion of films. I work at a small community college that
currently has an older video collection rarely used.

I would like a collection of entertainment, educational, foreign,
special sorts of things to make available to this rural area.

Could some of you provide me with lists of films worth collecting of
different types. I am definitely not knowledgeable in this area.

I appreciate any help anyone can give me,

Carol Harper

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.
