Please excuse the cross-posting.
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:
Family Entertainment, Art (as in Art/Foreign Language), In Demand Titles, Action/Adventure
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?
Please reply directly to me and I will summarize for the list.
