I know this is a bit out there, but it is loosely related to a white
paper I am writing so I'll shoot. Has anyone instituted or considered
a Netflix-type recommender system in their catalog for video? I
recognize the data privacy issues, so this would have to be a login
authenticated, opt-in solution. Nor am I suggesting this take the
place of our faculty consultations and well-crafted filmographies (for
the Andrew Keen, anti-crowdsourcing folks). Just a provocation...

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.
