[library-media] Good z39.50 source for videos

Years ago I purchased Brodart's EZCAT which searches open source Z39
compliant sites. MARC records can be downloaded. We used it all the
time and I found it useful especially for the obscure. Got a new
computer, however, and may need to update my license to reinstall. It
was a one-time purchase rather than a yearly fee. Of course, you don't
get support unless you pay yearly. We have Follett's A+ which we
contains MARC records for most new books but with few, if any, AV MARC
records. I also use Utah's Catalog for academic libraries
http://pioneer.utah.gov/libraries/academic_libraries.html and then
copy paste the information when cataloging from scratch.

First, I have to admit that I don*t know too much about this. Remember
when you were taking library courses and you were required to answer
what seemed like an impossible reference question(i.e. Wolf/Wolfe
packing, Was that one of JaDene*s question or Marilyn*s?)? Anyway, my
question is turning into that. I did, finally, find this really cool
list of z39.50 resources.
I obviously don*t know how many of these work and which ones are open
source and which require a password. From this list my district uses
the most basic:
Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/z3950/lcserver.html#addr
We also use UnivAZ.
The other 2 of the five are not working so I am not even going to
mention what they are.
