A patron complaint initiated our "Processing guidelines for multi-disc
dvds" procedure. Since our goal is to circulate the materials ASAP (2
weeks max) and preserve as much information for the patron, we will
leave the original (individual) packaging for multi-disc series such as
Foyle's War, Island at War etc. If a series comes packaged individually
(Tom Jones, BBC, 2 boxes), but does not have pertinet content
information on each disc, we will repackage it into one box. If a dvd
set contains multiple productions that can be viewed independently, we
will consider repackaging, such as Sherlock Holmes 5 film collection and
5 Film Noir Killer Classics. TV series are packaged by season. DVDs
circulate for one week with one renewal possible.
