video viewing and discussion
program for out-of-school adults. Learn how all types
of libraries are sponsoring
successful outreach programs with this unique format.
Sample programs include
"From Rosie to Roosevelt: A Film History of Americans
in World War II" (funded
by the National Endowment for the Humanities) and
"Fast Forward: Science,
Technology and the Communications Revolution" (funded
by the National Science
Foundation).

Saturday, 2-4 p.m.
ACRL Media Resources Committee; ALA Video Round Table
"Byting into Video: DVD and Networked Delivery"
Video collections in libraries are in a state of
transition. Do you know where your
video collection is, should, and could be going? Our
panel will update academic and
public librarians, administrators, and other
interested parties about the current status
of video formats in libraries and the trends with
regard to digital video and
networked delivery.
Moderator: Mary S. Konkel, head, Cataloging, Univ. of
Akron (OH). Speakers:
Walt Crawford, sr. analyst, Research Libs. Grp.; Karen
C. Lund, digital conversion
spec., Natl. Digital Lib. Prog., Lib. of Congress;
Judy Napier, dir., AV Svcs.,
Schaumburg (IL) Township District Lib.; Claire
Dougherty, dir., Northwestern
Univ. New Media Ctr.

Saturday, 2-4 p.m.
ACRL ARTS Section
"Is Seeing Understanding? Approaches to Visual/Media
Literacy in an
Information Age"
As new media packages and technologically rich
cultural experiences are designed
and created, it will be important for a variety of
institutions to instruct their users in
how to extract worthwhile information from these
sources. Unless these users can
effectively interpret this imagery, a significant
portion of the information literacy
fabric will be seriously weakened. The task before us
demands the collaborative
expertise of many knowledge specialists, including
those in dance, film, theater and
the visual arts.
Speakers: Mary Keelan, dir., Development, Advocacy,
and Media, Mid Hudson
Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, NY; Sally Mason-Robinson,
dir., Lib. Projects, Natl.
Video Resources, Chicago; Paula C. Murphy, libn.,
Research Svcs., Chicago
Historical Society; Peter M. Neal, dir., Educ., Corp.
for Pub. Broadcasting,
Washington, DC.

Sunday, 8:30-11 a.m.
PLA Audiovisual Committee, Library Services Cluster
"Sense and Sensibilities: AV Readers' Advisor"
What was the name of that 1970s movie with Joan Rivers
and Billy Crystal? Do
you have a recording of the song Puppy Love? Is there
an unabridged audio of
Harry Potter? Learn where to find the answers to these
tough AV reference
questions and more. Hear how to conduct a media
advisor interview. AV experts
will show you how to give your AV patrons what they
want. Speakers: Judy
Napier, Schaumburg (IL) Township Dist. Lib.; Randy
Pitman, editor, Video
Librarian Magazine; Christopher Popa, Harold
Washington Pub. Lib.; Robin
Whitten, editor, Audiofile Magazine.
