Gary asked me to report when I heard anything about Section 108 news.
What I have heard (through Miriam Nisbet and Carrie Russell) is that
even though the 108 study group was to be finished with their report in
April, they will most likely not have it ready until fall sometime. At
that point the Copyright Office will have to assess that and make
recommendations to Congress, who may or may not act on them, so it could
be a while. From what I hear, there was no consensus on changes to be
made, so there may end up being very few alterations.=20

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.
