Hi I'm new to the list. I am interested in purchasing videos for a small
Judaica public library so I am interested in any videos with any Jewish
or Judaica content - popular, educational, children's, Jewish holidays,
Israel etc. I am in Canada so I have to consider shipping, customs etc.
Is it better to deal directly with producers/production companies or
distributors. Are there any outstanding producers that specialize in this
area? I am starting to compile lists of video producers to get catalogues
but I'm not sure of the best route to go. I probably have 1000 - 2000 for
purchases right now and maybe 500 per year after that (hopefully more).
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I also am interested in purchasing
CDROMs (Judaica) although I'm not sure this is the listserv for software.
I received some info from VideOGo libray distribution so it started me
considering if a distributor was the answer. Also reviews of videos in
the Judaica area do not seem to be consolidated in anyone publication.
Any suggestions there? Thanks for any help in these matters.
