Don't forget that librarians are under a lot of pressure from administrator=
s/instructors who are wondering why they aren't just digitizing and streami=
ng everything in their collections.....

I've also heard the argument that students should be required to purchase f=
ilms they are studying-just as they do textbooks. But-would they actually =
purchase them, or just get them from Netflix....or a cheaper, less legal al=
ternative?

The reality is that models where you pay a fee and get a batch of stuff wor=
k very well for large institutions-they are already used to purchasing elec=
tronic serials this way, and it seems easier. Anything that can be "outsou=
rced" and have the labor done elsewhere is ideal.

Unfortunately, I can already see the way people doing research shifting-if =
it's not electronic, it doesn't exist-and this day is coming rapidly for fi=
lm as well. I am certain that online availability/streaming/etc. is alread=
y dictating some choices instructors are making.

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.
