We have several European region DVDs in our collection, and lots of faculty bring in their own European or African DVDs--
Our classroom support people say they can't purchase region-free DVD players legally in Massachusetts--
has anyone else encountered this problem?
how did you solve it?
thanks! hope everyone's 4th was glorious!

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.
