I know what you mean. There are films out there that have home use
pricing/institutional pricing that I know will get home use, and it does
irk me at times that I have to pay institution price. Sometimes I have a
faculty ask (rarely) "what if I buy this and donate it to the collection".
Hey, go ahead, right? (they usually do not).

Here how I am solving it: I am a one woman WE HAVE FILMS WITH PPR THAT YOU
CAN USE ON CAMPUS, and in CLASSES!!!! I'm working on a LibGuide for the
express purchase of touting our PPR collection. Lots of students groups
could you these films for events (without charge, of course). So, I just
decided to educate myself, my fellow librarians, and as many folks as I can
about what it means to have the PPR, and what are the titles we have, how
they can be used in a variety of subject area too. My 2 cents.

EVERYONE: I'm looking for a copy of Godard's Numero Deux. Tried all the
usual suspects short of going to France. Any other ideas? (DVA, Facets,
Amazon, Alibris, original distributors). Thanks

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
