Among my various duties at Hamilton College, I am the "yet another
clerk" who places the rental orders with Swank and other companies, on
behalf of any faculty member or student organization who wants to
sponsor a public performance. I place an order for each film or a whole
list of films, for the specified showing date(s). Fortunately, I don't
need to go through our purchasing office to get authorization for each
order! The DVD (or VHS tape or 16mm film) is shipped to me. I make sure
that it gets to the right venue on the right date, and I return it to
the distributor afterwards. I process the invoice and send it to
Accounts Payable.

Yes, Swank insists on sending us the actual movie, even if we have a
copy in our library. Some companies will sell us a license for a showing
of our own DVD.

*No, I meant that when you are planning to show feature film you have to 
request that title for a particular date. They send the movie (whether 
you need it or not, apparently) and you must return it using the label 
provided. Each title and show dates are licensed individually, I guess. 
I assume if you are doing a pre-planned film series, it would be one 
long document, but if you want to have a showing of "Inconvenient 
Truth", for instance, you must make that request, get the invoice. For 
those of us with tedious purchasing departments, it is a mini-nightmare.*

The Swank license requires you to tell them each item you use ?  Do they 
let you license the entire studio collection or only what they have up ?

*This sounds a bit like the annual copyright license one can buy now for 
print materials. It would be great to subscribe to a service like that, 
report usage, allow the participating producers to collect fees. The 
administrative burden of applying for PPR from Swank or each producer 
now is daunting, never mind the cost. Most of us don't want a copy sent 
to view---we already have that. We just want to be able to maximize the 
use of that resource without having to hire yet another clerk to keep 
track of the rights and permissions.*

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.
