We, here at CSU-Sacramento, are still in a wait and see mode re DVD.

Do any list members have DVDs in their video libraries? If so, how
extensive is your collection and how heavily are the disks used? Are
there any idiosyncrasies to the format?

It seems probable that DVD will eventually replace tape and laserdisk; I
wonder if any libraries have been developing formal plans for a gradual
switch over, or is it too early?
