Ditto here. I also have FirstSearch. This is
an invaluable aid to me, especially for replacement titles..

We have a standing order for this publication. I receive it annually.
MediaOne CD-ROM does not cover the same material. VSB covers both home
video and educational video. It purports to be video-in-print and
includes prices. It's a good source and I use it daily. However,
nothing is complete. I also have a standing order for _Bowker's Complete
Video Directory_, which is also annual and a similar source. I use it all
the time too and I'm amazed by what I find listed in one and not the other
reference book. I also buy the Bowker product on CD-ROM, but I rarely use
it. I don't see how anyone who buys video can get along without one or
both of these publications. When we say, "We've checked the usual
sources," that's what we mean, plus others...
