OK, I've lurked long enough without putting in my 2 cents worth. In an
earlier "print" age Jim Scholtz and I did a book through ALA that was a guide
to a basic public library video collection. We used a group of editors
(working public librarians form various sizes and types of public libraries).
There is a reason there are no second editions of these various works we have
discussed--this is a humongous amount of work! And we all have other
jobs...maybe compiling something online is a way to go to start. But we need
to keep publishing so that we aren't just sharing information with the
already conscientious and committed!
