Dear Video librarians,

Does anyone have a suggestion for a video on Islamic architecture or
culture? There will be an exhibition on Islamic architecture here at
Purdue in the fall and the professor in charge wants to show something
to enhance the scope of what they are covering. He would also be
interested in any other area of Islamic culture, say something on
manuscripts, calligraphy, a particular period--say Ottoman. I know we
will have to deal with the performance rights issue since it is in a
gallery space. Thanks for any suggestions.

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.
