It has been strongly suggested to me by our director and assistant director
that we start adding DVDs to our collection. Before I jump headlong into
this, I want our policy issues straight. While we have a specific policy
for videos, I know that it probably wouldn't fit DVDs, since our collection
is probably about 75% educational. If your video collection is like ours,
and you have DVDs, are you just focusing on feature films for them, or are
you trying to mirror your video collection policy?

Also, thanks to those who answered my question on converting the closed
access videos to open shelving. Great ideas, thanks a lot, but most of the
whole set up was decided without me. I did get to the meeting, but in 6
months when something goes wrong, they are going to come to me to try and
solve the problem. Oh, well, time to stop whining.
