Ambassador carries quite a few. I would avoid Insight unless you cannot find the title elsewhere. They offer poor descriptions of their titles and the prices are inflated. They often have one volume of a large set and you don't know that until the item actually comes in.

Below is a cut and paste from a document I created as a handout for a recent presentation. Some of them are more youth oriented, but for the most part they are very good sources for educational media. We use Baker and Taylor for our popular titles.

[Videolib] Vendors for Academic Media Libraries

Dear Colleagues,
My job of media acquisitions has recently been transferred to the library from the informational technology center and my new boss has asked me to look for ways to streamline the acquisitions process. We are wondering if any of you are aware of any one vendor that we could use to preview and order items from. Presently we use a number of vendors and shop around for the best price. I know that because of the wide range of specialties it might be hard to find just one vendor but any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated.

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.
