Periodicals and Videos Birdie MacLennan 02 Jan 1991 21:03 UTC

The following is an excerpt from a letter recently received by our
Assistant Director for Technical Services.  We have not (yet)
had to deal with this issue here, but perhaps others out there have? ...
Please respond respond directly to SERIALST or to the librarians
at UNH (as listed below; they don't have e-mail addresses).  SERIALST
responses will be printed out & forwarded to UNH via U.S. mail.

... We are beginning to receive periodicals with videos with some frequency,
and it would be helpful for us to know the approaches other libraries are
taking.  Some of the questions we have are:  Should the volume and video-
cassette be shelved together?  Some videos are necessary illustrations of
the text, and others are less essential.  How should we handle circulation
of the videocassette for circulating periodicals, and what should we do about
those that do not circulate?  Is is practical to attach notes to the materials
directing patrons to videos shelved elsewhere?  What solutions have you found?
