I am gathering information for a presentation on new and emerging video
formats at the 1997 National Media Market and I hope you can help. If
your library collects media in any optical format -- laserdisc, multimedia
CD-ROM, DVD, or others -- please take a few minutes to respond to the
following survey. Send replies to me via email: brancoli@indiana.edu.
Gary will be very angry with me if you all reply to the list! If you
prefer, you can print the survey and fax me your response at 812/855-1649.
I will compile results and make them available in late October. Thanks!
