We have a collection of over 4,500 DVDs and 2,700 videocassettes in our
main library in the adult feature film area. Juvenile and Nonfiction
titles are shelved in their respective departments. At present, the
adult feature films are shelved (separately from each other) in
alphabetical order by title. In response to customer requests, we're
considering the following categories:=20
Family Entertainment, Art (as in Art/Foreign Language), In Demand
Titles, Action/Adventure
=20
Has anyone separated their video recordings into categories? How well
has it worked? Which categories did you use? How did you let
customers/library staff know where to find them--call number change,
stickers on the spine, etc?
=20
Please reply directly to me and I will summarize for the list.

Thanks!
