We are "wait and see" also. Does anyone know if any large
educational video distributor has titles out in DVD format? If not,
I can't imagine why we would want to pursue DVD. We do not collect
timely feature films at this university, only classics. At that,
only a very few.

I found out yesterday that our Instructional Media Department (it is
independent of the library) has begun to acquire DVD titles which will be
given to the library at the end of the semester. Some of our Film faculty
has jumped on the DVD bandwagon, with more to follow.

Our position has been more "wait and see", but since we will be receiving
them and will have to make them available, I'd like to see how other
libraries are handling the new format.
