Subject: [Videolib] Television series for academic collections
With the summer heat in full effect here in Ellensburg, thoughts turn
to collection development. I have for some time been trying to think of
various television series to propose to purchase for our collection.
This seems like a good time for this as it is becoming popular (read
profitable) for companies to release full seasons of various series, so
there is a good selection. I was wondering what has been some of your
best purchases in this area. Do you buy whole seasons, whole series,
or just get a sampling? For an academic library, I would think sampling
would be best, but sometimes that is not an option.
