Have you considered NetFlix subscription. I got one for my largish
community college collection to supplement the educational titles and
because we are spreading our collection to a new campus. It just might
be the solution you are looking for, especially since you collection is
little used. We have a four-at-a-time subscription for about
$25.00/month which is a lot cheaper than buying several $300.00 videos
for your collection.

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.
