I work at Las Vegas Clark County Library District and our imput system for
video is the same as for books. If we don't have something that the patron
wants, we put the title/subject at the bottom of our stats list. At the end
of the month, our library assistant types up the list and circulates it to
the person who orders for that area (I get the video and paperback
requests). This system seems to work well for us. The hard part about it
is that videos get into the system a lot slower.
I hope that this helps.
