I've been following this thread with interest. While everyone is bandying
around these figures of "how many circs", very few are mentioning whether
or not they have a video cleaning/checking programme, and how this (or
the lack of it) figures into their decision.

p.s. Do those patrons who won't take out library videotapes because they
"might damage their machines" not use video stores either?! I don't know
of very many video stores around here with a regular cleaning programme like
ours... and I've actually seen a staff member in one of them splice
videotape with ordinary scotch tape before putting it back on the shelf.

Frankly I'd sooner use our library videotapes any time.
