As already mentioned, not really okay.

I wasn't sure if by "not available" you meant never released on video or me=
rely out-of-print. If oop, you should try to borrow (through ILL or a vide=
ostore) or track down a secondhand copy to buy. But, if they are truly not=
available on video, you can choose to make a judgment call on whether or n=
ot to go ahead.

Subject: [Videolib] Copies of Videos for reserve

Greetings Everyone,

This is my first post to the list, so I apologize if I am asking a very bas=
ic question.

We recently had an instructor bring us a couple videos in VHS format. One i=
s a copy of a hallmark channel movie from the 80s and the other is a copy o=
f a feature film from the 80s. She would like these placed on traditional i=
n-house reserve that would be available to students for in room use during =
the spring semester. Our preliminary research shows that these are not avai=
lable for purchase.

What do I need to consider when determining if these can be placed on reser=
ve? Is it the four factors that I consider for our traditional paper-based =
reserve items and/or something else?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Pauline

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.
