Speaking of streaming:

Am I correct in understanding that there isn't/won't be much overlap in
the Netflix/Amazon/Blockbuster collections? So, if people want a good
selection of old and new titles, they would have to subscribe to more than
1 service?

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.
