I'd like VRT to do more analysis and report on PPR. The collection report
summary says most institutions do not routinely purchase film rights. Why
is this? In what ways could multi-type libraries and the film industry collaborate
so more movies can be seen in libraries?

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.
