You need PPR. This just came up on our campus
with a prof who wanted to invite everyone to
screenings for his theater course. It's truly
amazing how often people think *the only* issue

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.
