I've posted this before, but what the heck! Here's a small list I wrote up
for the beginning video librarian/film student:

I would suggest:
Randy Pitman's "Video Librarian" magazine
Subscribe also to the listserv Videonews since there's special offers from
the distributors and new release announcements
"Library Journal"
"Video Store" and "Video Business" magazine (free subscriptions and free
website)
Variety magazine (probably the most balanced film reviews of the bunch). You
can also do a search on <A HREF="http://www.findarticles.com/PI/index.jhtml">http://www.findarticles.com/PI/index.jhtml</A> to find
any past reviews from Variety and a number of other sources.
Weekly mags with strong film reviewers including Village Voice, Chicago
Reader, Time Out New York, the New York Times on Sunday, and the LA Reader.
Cineaste magazine
Leonard Maltin's guide
and getting on as many distributor's mailing lists as possible to get their
brochures including ours, Kino's, New Yorker, Zeitgeist, Wellspring, Image
Entertainment (for DVD), Criterion, Women Make Movies, Third World Newsreel,
Frameline, California Newsreel, Home Vision, Direct Cinema, Bullfrog and
everybody else's. Gary's VideoLib website has them all and their contact
info.
Also, of course, the monthly mags from Baker & Taylor, Facets and Ingram.

Also, some film books including
anything from Kevin Brownlow, especially "The Parade's Gone By"
"Flashback: A Brief History of Film" by Louis Giannetti and Scott Eyman
"Videohound's World Cinema" by Elliot Wilhelm (one of my absolute favorites)
and other general histories by David Cook, David Bordwell, and others
