After you figure out what the shelves need to be like in your barrister bookcase, you need to figure out how many bookcases you need and how big they need to be so they will hold all your items. It is important to remember that you are likely to add new items to your collection of books or other items so you want to have room for these items on your bookcases.
Some of the newer barrister bookcases may cost less but they are not as well made and will not hold up over time as well as the older barrister bookcases made out of better quality wood. The glass in the doors of the newer models is also not going to be as good quality nor are the other parts like handles and hinges. You can tell a good barrister bookcase by looking at the joints, which should be dove-tailed or attached in another traditional way and not with screws or nails like the newer bookcases.
You also need to keep in mind what you are going to display on the bookcase. The closed doors on the barrister bookcases protect your items from dust and moisture and keep them in good shape. The shelves in most barrister bookcases do not move or adjust but some have shelves that can be pulled out so you can store items that are perfectly flat.
