I'm *very* new to Media/Video Collection Development, and wonder if
there is an industry standard publication that reviews videos for
librarians. I've kind of taken over the CD, ordering, cataloging, and
reserving of videos for faculty and students at my small community
college, and aside from Choice, LJ, and the SCADS of catalogs I'm
receiving, I was wondering if there's a publication that's a bit more
focused on *videos*...

Also, I'm curious as to what you all think is the difference between a
$30 video and a $90-$130 dollar one, if the subject matter seems to be
about the same - size of the production house/ vendor? Cost to
distribute? Built in PPR? Any light on the subject would be helpful.
