At MCLS, we collect mostly feature films. During the past year, I've =
been buying more non-fiction because it has been a neglected area of the =
collection and some of them do go out quite a bit. But the emphasis is =
and always will be on the movies. When it comes down to it, you have to =
give the people what they want. I draw the line only at X-rated films =
and really bad slasher movies (As determined by reviews). Feature films =
have as much right to be in a public library as your average bestseller =
or romance novel.

Feature films

Hi all - I'm interested in those libraries that do NOT collect feature =
film
video. Here at the County of Los Angeles Public Library, we collect
feature film and IMO often too much. I know that many libraries do not
collect it at all. How do you justify it? Do you have a written =
policy?=20
How many complaints have you received? I'm looking to restrict the
amount of feature film video we purchase here and am unabashedly
looking for *ammunition*. Any comments on the issue are welcomed.=20
Thanks very much -
