ACRL/ARTS Film and Broadcast Discussion Group (whew!)
ALA Midwinter Meeting

"The formats they are a changin'"

Just as Bob prognosticated way back when, the formats (and the times) are
changing. FABS will be discussing these changes and their implications for
our collections and the impact on instruction and classroom use.

- film>vhs>laserdisc>dvd>hdtv
- lp>audiocassette>cd>mp3
- $$ for new equipment
- how to promote to faculty
- how to respond to early adopter faculty
- more more more
- what is compelling about the new format? specific titles? best
of?
bring a list! your own top ten!

Please come prepared with questions, solutions, answers, problems,
12-year-old scotch or whatever you can or care to contribute.

The meeting will be held Sunday, January 14th from 2-4PM at The Madison
Hotel in the Montipelier Room.

Hope to see you all there!
