03-17: Non-Fiction DVDs

Non-Fiction DVDs

Currently the most popular form of visual media in libraries, DVDs may soon become extinct.

Just as VHS faded away, so will DVDs. It's important to have a fresh, topical collection in good working condition. Non-fiction DVDs that are worn and scratched, have dated cover art or topics long left behind are just going to take up shelf space. Just like your non-fiction print collection, it is important to ensure your non-fiction DVD collection also remains current and provides timely and accurate information.

Does anyone still want to exercise with Richard Simmons or learn to Bedazzle?
