Video collection development in multi-type libraries : a handbook / edited
by Gary P. Handman. 2nd ed. Westport, Conn. : Greenwood Press, 2002.

...am I shameless, or what?

How did you go about doing it?

What kind of policy do you have (separate from library book policy, or part of that same policy)?

How strictly do you follow the policy?

Do you include educational/documentary videos and popular Hollywood videos?

 

Thank you, in advance, for your input.                                         Brian
