Perhaps I'm missing something basic in this thread (wouldn't be the first time), but the discussion seems to be mostly about buying fiction in audio book format. I realize that fiction is a big circulation builder, but non-fiction books are also produced in audio format, and not just language instruction. Listening to audio versions of assigned readings, especially for commuters, can be a viable and convenient alternative.

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.
