Barbara:
Several titles run across several disciplines: health, history, political science. etc. These titles are accessioned in numerical order depending upon type. Take a look at:
http://www.bcc.cuny.edu/library

Then click on MEDIAGRAPHIES

You will then be taken to a SELECT COURSE SITE, choose any and view in pdf the media list for that course which is incorporated into the syllabus of the course. All Instructors preview titles prior to inclusion. They decide where the title goes on the list.

LaRoi,
How do you handle multi-disciplinary titles that get used in more than one department?
Looks like the videos are shelved by accession number, yes?

Each video is assigned to a specific course currently taught on our campus. Examples: History 10(World History), History 35(Afro-American History) English 10 (Literature-American, English) Math 01, 02, 03, 11, 23, (General math, Algebra, Pre-Calc) Trig. etc., Feature films, Nursing, Social Sciences (Pyschology, Political Science, Human Services) Music, Modern Languages.
Art, Biology, Chemistry. I invite you to go to our website located at: http://www.bcc.cuny.edu/library
Click on mediagraphy and choose a discipline. What you will see is a drop down menu for the various courses that have utilized our VHD, CD-ROM, and DVD collection into their course syllabus.

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.

Thanks!
