We have not kept track of our replacement discs in 2009. Attached is
our "2008 Books on Replacement Discs" statistics. These statistics were
compiled by Pam White, our Acquisitions Coordinator.


It seems to me that we have ordered quite a few more in 2009. Hope this

As is usually the case, there's a quotable Rush lyric for that. In
fact, two:

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.
Changes aren't permanent, but change is.

Just sayin'.

I do hope that some more of the public librarians on the list will
respond to the question Mike asked, re: how often they need to take
advantage of the replacement disc offer. Sounds like for Myles & at
least one other person, not so much. Is Mike's experience all that

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.
