Why should non-print be treated any differently than books in regards to fa=
culty author policy?

While I don't know of any of our faculty being filmakers, we would treat th=
eir work the same as a book:
When we hear of a publication, we send congratulatory letter; a=
sk for bibliographic information and ask politely if they are able to donat=
e a copy. If they donate, great; if not, we buy what we can & then ask our=
dean if there's a little extra money the remaining works.

We hosted a first ever faculty authors reception last year - the honored fa=
culty were tickled pink and the publicity has resulted in other faculty to =
send us donations or at least the info at their own inititiative.

If you stress that having these materials in the library and therefore list=
ed in Worldcat increases university prestige, I'm sure you can get someone =
to bite on funding the purchases. (Development and Alumni offices love thi=
s sort of thing)

Subject: [Videolib] purchasing faculty produced films/videos

Dear collective wisdom,

We have a number of faculty here who make films. Often they hint or sugges=
t that we should purchase their production for the media collection. I wou=
ld love to, and think we should, but while there is a written policy for co=
llecting faculty work in print, we don't have anything about faculty nonpri=
nt work in the collection development policy.

Apart from having no policy, there is a general atmosphere of resistance. =
Some staff have suggested faculty should donate copies of their work. Uppe=
r admin seems to think that film/video is just too expensive (these are ind=
ependent productions, so run about 150-200 a title.)

When I went ahead and tried to purchase one instructor's film, a dean inter=
vened, and gave me a copy of the film that the instructor had given to him =
as a gift! The instructor was quite irritated, and, I felt, justifiably so=
.

We have film students who would welcome the chance to view their instructor=
s' work.

How do others out there deal with similar situations?

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.
