Re: [Videolib] TV shows on dvd

Twisting this thread slightly to satisfy my own needs, I wonder how
libraries already collecting TV shows on DVD package (or repackage?) them
for circulation.

Our circ policy is 7 days, no renewals on DVDs and it grieves me to tie up
an expensive multipart item the patron probably has NO hope of viewing in
our short loan period while long reserve lists build on it.

Do you chop them up into pieces, as a rule, or not worry about this problem?
If you chop them up, how do you catalog them?
