You might try www.doodle.ch. It works nicely with a small set of choices. Haven't tried a big set yet... and no links to reviews.. but great for scheduling meetings.

Publibbers struck out on this one ...

Our local cooperative has a collection of DVD's that rotates between the
12-15 member libraries & it's time to purchase some new titles.

A selection committee of three (from different libraries) will make the
initial choices & then share them with the entire group.

Wondering if anyone has used any of the newer online collaboration tools to
facilitate a process like this.

I've thought of using SurveyMonkey or maybe an online spreadsheet, to give
individuals a chance to rate the titles & share their thoughts. It would
also be nice to be able to include links to online reviews on Amazon or
wherever so folks could learn a bit more about the titles.

Grateful for any suggestions.
