Actually, I knew Facets was carrying it, but it was released by Strand in
July (we were sent a Region 1 copy for review), and Amazon.com shows it as
being in stock:

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.
