The November/December issue is the last print issue of Video Librarian but Video Librarian Online will continue
Video Librarian is ceasing print publication with the Nov/Dec issue, although Video Librarian Online will continue with the main mission of the magazine, presenting new reviews (from the same review team) and ongoing news briefs, updated regularly. Video Librarian Online will also include access to our searchable database of over 40,000 full-text video reviews, a searchable database of nearly 1,000 video distributors, and more. Subscriptions are $25 each for single username/passwords or $50 for IP access for multiple simultaneous users. We look forward to continuing this incredible journey that began 34 years ago.
