Just wanted to update you on the availability of the 1999 National Media
Market (NMM) title/subject index. It is available in a couple of different
forms: 1) as a downloadable Microsoft Access file (419Kb) from www.nmm.net
2) as an on-line, searchable database from Tek Data
(www.18.104.22.168/submax2/start.html) user #: 1; password: guest.
The index contains titles from 39 of the 43 video distributors who will be
exhibiting their "wares" to NMM participants in Las Vegas 10/20-24. The
index contains about 1960 titles giving the following information: Title,
series title, vendor (3-letter code), release date, run time, 3-4 subjects,
and price. CC is also indicated in the title. Database
construction/search instructions are available for download at the nmm site
as well. I've used this index to answer about 10 questions for video
listserv within the past 2 weeks. I hope you find it useful - please try
it and send comments for improvement to me. I hope to see many of you at
the Market. Jim Scholtz.
