Description: From Library Journal
Librarians adding video to their collections, particularly if they are doing so reluctantly, need to read this book. In this second edition of his 1994 original, editor Handman has compiled a comprehensive collection of experience and insight from more than two dozen librarians on policies, issues, and resources necessary to build useful video collections in school, public, academic, and special libraries. Since much has changed in the intervening years, this update is very welcome. With copyright law and policies in a state of flux, Handman's article "The Rights Stuff: Video Copyright and Collection Development" is particularly relevant. Chapters on video services for users with special needs and on cultural diversity are also well done. Each chapter has a list of materials to assist librarians with the "nuts and bolts" of collecting videos for a particular clientele or purpose. The chapters in the "Resources" section, which cover video reference tools and selection aids, sources for finding alternative media and stock and archival footage, and video and film organizations and discussion lists, contain particularly useful bibliographies. Even experienced media and collection development librarians will find new and helpful information and resources here. This is an essential purchase for all public and academic libraries.

Product Description:
This professional publication represents the broadest discussion of video collection development in libraries currently available. It provides detailed descriptions and discussions of resources, policies, concepts, and issues central to the practices of building and managing video collections in public, academic, school, and special libraries. The volume combines both practical and conceptual approaches to video collection building. Background discussions include the impact of video on society, the role of video in multi-type libraries, and the uses of video to meet special client needs. Also included are extensive listings of print, non-print, and institutional resources to assist librarians and educators in selecting, evaluating, and acquiring both mass market and independent video, as well as more elusive and specialized materials.
