I have a faculty request for a film called "Trudell." The website mentions multiple contacts for various reasons. It says DVD copies are available from Appaloosa Pictures, but Educational video copies are from Visionmaker Video (at Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln). I have tried to contact the latter but have received no response. I need to get them into our vendor file before I can order a copy.

Is anyone aware of another source? Or does anyone know anyone at Visionmaker? Should I give up and try Appaloosa? Someone else entirely handles "bookings"--Balcony Releasing. And for "more information" I can contact yet another website--bigbuckreleasing.com!

Argh!

This is a perfect example of the frustrations we librarians have in dealing with the industry.

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.
