I sorta like postcards...but not twenty copies of them (which happens a
lot). Ditto catalogs: I frequently get multiples...not to mention the fact
that every faculty person on campus who gets one sends it over to me.

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.
