Subject: RE: What films are available on video?
I guess this falls under the category of "tooting your own horn,"
but we here at Penn State will search for video and film titles
*for free*. We've got the sources listed below; just call or write
to us (Audio-Visual Services, The Pennsylvania State University,
Special Services Building, 1127 Fox Hill Road, University Park PA
16803-1824; telephone (814) 865-6314 or (800) 826-0132).
