"Beth, I don't know of a handout readymade, but perhaps these articles will give you some helpful information to develope one yourself. I would be very interested to have a copy of what you come up with.
Thanks, Ann Lancaster
"A few things come to mind:
Decide what types of materials you want to add - what is worth spending your money on and worth using library space on? Decide how you will limit the types so you don't get overwhelmed with donations.
For CDs: Music?…"
"Thanks for taking the time to respond. Actually all I'm looking for is a handout with general information for librarians who are thinking about adding CDs and DVDs to their collection. I simply did not want to "re-invent the wheel" if…"
I'm not clear on what you're asking for. Are you asking about copyright law regarding loaning out audio-visual materials to individual/family patrons for home use, or using them for church use? Or are you asking for suggestions on…"
We are hosting the Virginia Baptist Library Association (VBLA) Fall Conference at our church - Temple Baptist Church, Newport News - on October 15 & 16, 2010...y'all come! :) We would like to offer a workshop on how to build a CD/DVD collection in your library, and I'd like some advice regarding copyright rules, etc. Our library has 150+ CDs and about 100 DVDs - many VHS but we are phasing those out.

Thanks for your complimentary comment on our Back to School Promotion Window. I'm flattered that you are passing it on to your committee. It was a lot of fun and created lots of interest among our church members. We announce the winners this Sunday, and will then post the names on the pictures for all to see.

I will not be there VISIBLY--but you better believe I will be there on the wireless--Remember what Jesus told Jude and Phillip there in John 13-15? We are able to see Him where he occupies--and We are In the Vine! So you'll be able to see me there in the smiles, and you'll be able to hear me in the stories! There could never be a VBCLA mtg. without Mackie being there! Luv. Mackie
