Deb,
At Evansville (Ind.) Public Library we use genre categories. The ones we use
are: Action, Classics, Comedy, Drama, Fitness, History, Horror, How-to,
Musical, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Science, Sports, Travel, Western, Misc., and
Juvenile. We usually use the genre found in reel.com on the net. For
classics we use the criteria of a drama produced before 1956. We use color
coded dots on the packaging for easy patron use. At our central library (we
also have 7 branches) where we have our largest and oldest collection of
videos we also have the following categories: Business/Motivational,
Computers, Documentary, Foreign Films, Health/Safety, Parenting, Performance,
Religious, and Shakespeare.

Jeanne Bullock,
TSD - EVPL

A question: do any of you shelve or catalogue your popular/feature
videos in genre
categories like classic,war,drama,sf,comedy?? If so, what criteria do
you use ??
