Saskatoon Public Library's entertainment video collection consists of classics,
foreign films and current releases. We are investigating the feasibility of
allowing patrons to request or place holds on these items. We would appreciate
a response to the following questions as well as any other comments you care
to make.
1). Do you purchase current releases?

2). Do you accept holds on entertainment videos?

3). Do you limit the number of holds one patron may have? If so, what is the
limit?

4). Do you purchase extra copies of a title to meet demands? If so, do you
have a pre-determined ratio of number of requests to the number of copies
purchased?

5). What if any impact on your materials budget has this had?

We would appreciate a response by January 31. Thank you for your time.
