of an existing library technology, collection of
videocassettes, and ability to raise funds from slack
resources. The size of the libraries' materials and
equipment budgets had some significance, but it was not
consistently significant, as it was for the above-mentioned
factors, at the p < .01 level. Lack of in-house recording
ability did not impose a barrier on adoption of discs among
respondents. Full-motion, full-screen video was not seen as
very important for future multimedia use.
Of the 462 respondents, 86 libraries had collected
videodiscs. Fifty percent of libraries collecting
videodiscs started from 1989-1991, indicating growth of use
of videodiscs in academic and special libraries may
continue. There is interest among respondents in digital
multimedia, since approximately 53 percent said they would
purchase a digital multimedia computer system .for the
library over the next two years.
