We use Baker and Taylor. This is mostly an issue with Blu-rays, but
occasionally a DVD comes like this. I think you're right Winona. We can't
very well prove that we're paying extra for this, even though I'm pretty
sure we are. I think we'll probably go with just discarding it.

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.
