I'm not.

I'm questioning why an MLS, that most often has basically no relationship
with video collections, would be required for a video collection manager. I
think it's MLS folks fortressing their turf. How worthless is that?

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.
