Rhonda,
We still have a handful of U-matic videos and a couple of players on carts
just in case. Hopefully this will not be the case 2-3 years from now.
Thanks,
Gail

I'm curious as to whether any of you still have a u-matic player in your
media areas. We are moving to a new library and we do still have some of
the old umatic videos, but of course they are rarely used and unavailable in
newer formats....anyone still use them in their areas, have you tossed your
old u-matic tapes?

O Wise Ones,
In order to inject some anecdotal flavor into an article I'm writing on the
history of media collections in academic libraries, I am soliciting your
memories of media formats throughout the years. From magnetic tape to MP3s,
it's all fair game.

I'm looking for your personal stories - perhaps as a student, as a faculty
member or library professional. Your input can be humorous or serious as
long as it's related to academic library media collections.
Please take a few moments to share your memories with me directly off-list.
(widz@buffalo.edu) If I use your comments, you will, of course, be properly
cited. Thank you for your responses.

working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and
distributors.
