This is a really interesting question about the book drop. We
have always strongly discouraged our patrons from putting AV
materials in the book drop. This summer has seen drastic
changes in the traffic flow and parking on campus and the
moving of the book drops. More people are putting our things in
the drops. Now, recently I was in a vehicle line at Hollywood
video to drop off some of my rental videos and clearly a large
number of videos were being dropped in on top of each other and
Hollywood doesn't seem to mind. Maybe we have been too fussy
all along?

Two questions (totally different):

1) I have a patron looking for a foreign film entitled "Otra Vuelta de
Tuerca" (circa 1985?). He would like purchasing or rental information.
I struck out on the reference sources available to me. Any help would
be appreciated!

2) Please let me know if you allow your patrons to return their
audiovisual items in your library's regular book return (rather than
having a separate return for audiovisual items.) If so, has there been
much damage caused by heavier items being dropped on top of them or just
normal 'wear & tear', such as jewell case lids from cd's coming off?
Any comments would be appreciated, please reply to me rather than to the
list - Thanks!!
