Subject: RE: [Videolib] Audio Visual selection policies
This is a thorny issue at Colleges and Universities. I don't address it
our written policy, but if a series has been very highly rated and
reviewed, and not accessible except by premium cable or satellite
I consider it a valid purchase but NOT a required one. Of course, if a
faculty requests a set for either research or classroom need, I'll order
it, no matter where it had been broadcast.
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.
