Carolyn, if this helps give you a number to gauge how much to put in for
your grant, MEF discounts our films down to $75 when upgrading from VHS to
DVD. For many of our films, this is actually over 50%.

Please remember that most publishers give a substantial discount (some up to
50%) for relacing VHS tapes purchased from them in the past with DVDs.

Does anyone know the average cost of educational DVDs. I am in the process
of asking for a grant to replace VHS tapes and need the info to help
reinforce my request.

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.
