Dear Listserv Members,
Please keep in mind that the Public Library is run by a Library Board.
Public Library work is very different from your academic setting. We
must keep in mind the old axiom, "Know your Community"
that as it may, I do think all libraries should be buying TV Programs.
Their popularity is beyond belief!

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.
