RE: outsourcing cataloging of videos

We have been using Professional Media Services and Library Media Services
for several years to do about half of our acquisitions/cataloging/
processing of videos and CD's. After a period of adjustment, when we
refined our profiles, we are now satisfied with everything, except
occasional slowness in turnaround time--but this is still quicker than our
in-house turnaround. If you do most of your ordering from MUST_ORDER
DIRECTS, (and as a university, you may), you may want to do your own
ordering, and have the materials shipped to a vendor for cataloging/processing. This way you can preserve your discounts.
