I'm all for this, but from what I've seen, parents who showed children these
videos were already letting their children watch quite a bit of TV anyway.
I wonder how many were honestly showing these because they thought they were

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.
