EPA BETA-SP Video Distributed to Depositories

GPO distributed the EPA video "After the Storm" on shipping list no. 2004-0028-E, on August 23, 2004. The video is in BETA-SP, a format widely used by cable and other TV channels. BETA-SP should not be confused with the old "BETAMAX" format. Though many depository libraries will not be able to use BETA-SP, some library patrons may be able to use it, and depositories may check the video out to local broadcasting stations. This would be an excellent opportunity to publicize the Federal Depository Library Program to local media outlets.

The EPA has also issued a VHS version with an accompanying brochure. The VHS version has a slightly different subtitle, “A citizen's guide to understanding stormwater.” GPO is in the process of acquiring the VHS video and the brochure.
