Re: "Day the Music Died" and "1968" Search

I am just wondering if it would be appropriate for the organisation to
have a corporate credit card for such instances. Alternatively, a staff
could purchase the material using his or her own credit card and claim the
sum back. I know the second alternative is very unfair and stupid but the
organisation should not hinder the purchase of good materials in any way.

The last way I can think of is to get a vendor to supply the material
but the vendor would then charge a handling fee, thus increasing the price
of the item. Would love any comments on this discussion.

Subject: "Day the Music Died" and "1968" Search


I have a library looking for a source for 2 videos that have been running
of VH1. They are "The Day the Music Died" about Buddy Holly and "1968"
that reviews rock groups. I have fournd a "1968: The Year That Shaped a
Generation and that is not the one they are looking for. The videos are
available for sale from the TV station, but only with a credit card. The
city does not allow the library to purchase materials like that. Has
anyone out there purchased these titles through another source?

Thanks for any help you can give.
