  • Libraries with NonRequest collections have chosen to make their entire set of new videos serve as a browsing collection, available to anyone who visits their library.
  • Local resident is determined by the town of residence of the patron.
  • This table does not reflect the practices of these libraries for videos older than three months.
  • For patrons living in a town with a NonRequest collection of new videos, there will be no ability to place a request for a new video in the online catalog.
  • For patrons living in a town with a Requestable by Local Patrons collection of new videos, there will be the ability for patrons to place a request in the online catalog for new videos owned by their local library only
