My apologies if this issue has been addressed before, but I'm new to this
list (as well as new to the responsibility of administering a video
collection). Has anyone written up a collection development policy (that
they would be willing to share) for obtaining videos? In particular, has
anyone addressed the topic of "preferred format" in such a document? Does
anyone have any pearls of wisdom regarding how such collection decisions
are made, beyond simply buying "what's available"?
