I did not mean to lump anyone in. It was my understanding that many of the
specialty educational companies like First Run, Women Make
Movies, BullFrog etc would only allow direct sales I sincerely apologize
if I am wrong but I would appreciate some clarification on policies from
any of the above and other specialty distributors. I know some companies
have titles that they may sell retail but other titles they will only sell
direct because of pricing and rights issues ( New Yorker and First Run come
to mind). I am reasonably certain that the majority of what I would call
high end specialty titles
( mostly non fiction) can only be bought directly from the distributor
meaning that even the best connected vendor would not be able to supply

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.
