A.V. in Public and School Libraries: Selection and Policy Issues
Learn the right questions to ask when considering the creation, maintenance, and policy needs of the A.V. collection!
A.V. in Public and School Libraries guides librarians through the development of an A.V. policy by addressing special aspects of A.V. in the 90s such as censorship, cataloging, costs, and acquisition policy dilemmas. Audio-visual material use is soaring in the public and school library environment, yet some video collections are being developed haphazardly as libraries select new materials based on policy statements written for print materials.
The staff of any library that is starting or adding to an A.V. collection will benefit from this insightful overview of the video collection that addresses future trends, patron use patterns, collection development tools, and development of written policies. Some of the special issues concerning the A.V. collection addressed in this book include:
