Three good books address video collection development and selection issues:
Handman, Gary. Video Collection Development in Multi-Type Libraries.
Greenwood Publishing. 1994. $75
Scholtz, James. Video Acquisitions and Cataloging. Greenwood Publishing
Pitman, Randy. Video Librarian's Guide to Collection Development and
Management. G.K. Hall. 1992. $35.
Also, as Audiovisual Editor of the review publication Booklist, I
have developed criteria and guidelines for evaluation of video. Let me know
if you want further information.
