Thanks Blaine, Gary, Michael, Dina and Danette. I am just easing into
facilitating distinct subject expertise for our media resources. I
have compiled the responses, will investigate for my own knowledge,
and will forward to faculty tomorrow by 4pm CST if anyone else wants
to add (leaving town).

Best,
Scott

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.
