I would like to find out how video collection development is done at other institutions. Here at Manhattanville, the librarians all have a handful of departments that we are liaison to. Originally, I handled all video requests but I have changed it so that the liaison with that department handles the request while I still oversee the purchases somewhat. It's a bit strange since we do not have specific budgets for each department when it comes to videos because not every department purchases videos from us. I would really enjoy hearing some input about how these procedures are handled at other places. Thanks for everyone's help!
