I actually like the green cases, because when I re-case the item to make it consistent with the rest of our collection I know that I am not wasting a case. It would be nice to have the green case the same size as a normal case insert and be flexible to just slide into our standard amarays.

Just wanted to ask any libraries or distributors on the use of "green" DVD
packaging. We've noticed a few companies using the new flat, paper cases for
their titles and wanted to know if there were any issues for libraries in
cataloging or storing them, any preferences, etc.

Thank you,

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.
