Very well put. You have it exactly. If the folks can't get their "stuff" on
streaming and/or download, then their "stuff" will become irrelevant - in my
opinion of course. ;-)

Now just imagine the back-channel (off-list) emails that will fly as a

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.
