Re: Why 2-day checkout?

Some AV video checkout policies are shorter (max. that I've seen is 7
days) because the video collection is not as extensive as the print
collection or books...or the video titles are in demand more -
proportionate to the number of tapes in the collection. As an academic
library serving 8,000-10,000 students throughout the Southeastern U.S. we
have an extremely flexible checkout period. The default is 3 days, but we
usually extend for up to two weeks if it is necessary for shipping/
previewing and class usage.
