Hi everyone,

=20

About a month ago I received a request from a faculty member for a
video, but due to our very small media budget this year and the
educational/institutional cost of the video we told them we were unable
to order it at this time and would consider it again near the end of the
budget year. This faculty member has recently asked if she could donate
her copy to the library, and being fairly new to my position I wasn't
quite sure how donations worked with videos. When I spoke with my
supervisor about it they said no we couldn't accept it due to their
uncertainty with the copyright issues it could pose. My supervisors
concern was that the video in question had an educational/institutional
cost and felt our faculty members copy probably didn't have PPR. Being
that this was the first time I've had a faculty member offer a donation,
I was just wondering if there are actual do's and don'ts when it comes
to accepting video donations, and if so what are they? I'm sure some
policies may vary library to library, but if anyone could share what
they do I would really appreciate it. =20

Sincerely,

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.
