If I were in a public library, I would certainly consider it for popular films but we probably won't go there. We are moving into more streaming video for educational use--Alexander Street, FMG, primarily. We'll stick with regular DVDs as long as they can play on higher ed machines.

Dear folks,

I'd really love to know...

How many of you actively purchase Blu-ray discs?

How many of you won't buy blu-ray discs now or in the next year?

How many of you prefer to buy a Blu-ray film rather than a similar film on DVD?

If there was a Blu-ray disc with one free SD-download, would that be helpful in making your decisions?

Just thinking of our next steps...

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.
