16mm withdrawals

Tue, 3 Oct 1995 16:27:42 -0400 (EDT)

Our library is in the process of downsizing our 16mm collection, which is
a prelude to getting rid of them altogether(!). Our usual procedure is to
give all withdrawn materials to the Friends of the Library, who sell them
at their semiannual book sales. I need feedback from you on the following:
1)How have the rest of you done this, if at all?
2)Do you have any names (addresses, phone #'s) of companies that buy 16mm
collections? Any experiences to share about these companies, like how
much they offer you?
3)Any other advice to share (I'm also thinking about this topic as a
conference program offering)?

Thanks in advance - please send responses via videolib or to me directly.
