The best group of video collection development policies that I have seen
is in the SPEC kit that Rick Provine and I compiled in the early 1990's.
It contains a variety of video policies, including about 15 collection
development policies. Your library probably owns a copy:

Video and Multimedia Collections in ARL Libraries. SPEC Kit 199, December
1993. Washington, D.C.: Office of Management Studies, Association of
Research Libraries. Documents compiled and SPEC flyer by Kristine
Brancolini and Rick E. Provine.

The Indiana University policy is on the Web:
