I don't know about anyone else, but I got thrown in the water when we
decided to start adding video, when I was a paraprofessional, way back in
the mid 80s. My experience was that I had assisted in selecting and
ordering our sound recordings. Video was another av format, so it fell into
my ballywick. I learned as I went along. I only found out about this great
list, and the Video Round Table through this list a couple of years ago!
Participation in this list has been VERY helpful to me in my job, learning
about trends, issues, and getting to know the great folks on the list. And,
I don't know for sure, but my impression is that not many LS programs have
much to offer in av librarianship. Just my thoughts.
