Reserve Your Copy of the DVD Today

November 5, 2011

We are now accepting reservations for DVDs of Library of the Early Mind, which will be available for purchase as of December 1, 2011. As we begin to fulfill DVD orders, we will give priority to those who have reserved in advance and paid in full. 

We’ve priced the DVD of Library of the Early Mind at one amount of US$30 for both consumers and institutions, recognizing that libraries, schools, and universities are finding it harder to allocate funds for more typical educational pricing of $150 to $200, which would represent a sum covering the use of a DVD for patron loans or multiple showings. Our general price of US$30 is in the range of “consumer” pricing for independent films.

We hope the pricing will allow you to enjoy and share the film. We encourage consumers looking to view the film individually to consider our online digital rental, priced at US$4.99 (available later in November). We also encourage educators to consider using the digital rental to have students view the film outside classroom time. It helps reflect the educational usage we support and also helps us recover our production costs.

To reserve the DVD, please email and provide the following, and we will respond with more specific payment information:

  • Your name
  • Your full shipping address (home, library, school, etc.)
  • Your email address and phone number
  • Your preferred method of payment [cash, check, credit card (via PayPal)]
  • Number of copies you wish to purchase
We will be fulfilling the initial run of orders ourselves and will make every effort to expedite your order. As we expect a substantial number of orders, we ask for your patience in receiving copies and any communication regarding your order. **Please let us know if the DVD is a holiday gift that needs to arrive before December 23, 2011.**
Note: The DVDs are NTSC encoded per North American standards, which means that people in countries (Europe, Australia, NZ, etc.) where the standard encoding is PAL will not be able to view the film on a DVD or Blu-ray player, but will be able to play the film on any computer.

    So by purchasing the DVD at $30, would a library be able to circulate it to patrons? Or does the $30 reduced price mean that the DVDs can only be purchased for personal or professional use?

      You may circulate the $30 DVD, and show the film to audiences of 30 or fewer. For larger audiences, please contact to negotiate a fee. Thank you!
