I buy for a large public library system and we purchase Blu-rays for about
half of our branches. We only buy the most popular titles (we are a
'popular materials library'). We have not included formats in our policy.

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.
