Description: From Library Journal
The so-called "video revolution" of the last ten years or so has placed new pressures on libraries to keep pace and to provide their patrons with materials in video format that may or may not be available through their local video outlet. There has also been a proliferation of books on the development and maintenance of such collections in libraries. Mason-Robinson, currently project director for the National Video Resources Library Initiative and a former director of video and special projects for the American Library Association, provides a sound introduction to this topic, covering in six chapters such areas as evaluation of titles, selection and acquisition, collection development policies, and collection management. She addresses the important questions of copyright and public performance rights (from a U.S. perspective), and as this area is fraught with perils for libraries, her discussion is timely. In addition, five appendixes provide criteria for evaluating nonprint materials (based on standards used by Booklist's reviewers), a sample video evaluation form, consortium purchasing information, and a list of sources for special materials. The book's focus is public libraries, though school and academic libraries may be able to gain some insights with regard to their own special circumstances. Libraries contemplating the introduction of video collections may also want to look at two books by James Scholtz, Video Policies and Procedures For Libraries (Professional Reading, LJ 10/1/91) and Video Acquisitions and Cataloging: A Handbook (Professional Reading, LJ 3/15/96), as extensions of the present text. Recommended for public libraries.
