On another list, someone asked about PPR again and another poster suggested they contact the MPLC for an umbrella license. I had tried that route and was told that they do not sell those licenses to colleges. Am I mistaken? Should I have presented myself as the college library and only the library as presenter?

Their brochure is enticing and makes it sound soooo easy. However, I assume if it were that easy to obtain this umbrella license we would not have had the extended conversation on this topic.

Has any other college on the list managed to make this deal?

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.
