At the risk of beating the old proverbial horse, this is the positively
last reminder re the fab video-related events happening at ALA in SF. In
particular: the Gala this year promises to be among the niftiest ever, but
tix are going fast. I personally guarantee great weather (but bring a coat
just in case). It is bound to be tres groovy! (See below for ticket
ordering details).

user expectations and demands. A panel of media librarians will use the
ACRL "Guidelines for Media Resources in Academic Libraries" as a
springboard for their remarks as they share their personal experiences in
planning, budgeting, staffing, and collection development while juggling
additional services of distance learning, digital initiatives and
networked/satellite teleconferencing.

The Reel Nitty Gritty: Secrets of Video Librarianship Revealed. Aimed at

selection and evaluation, copyright, access and censorship, and evolving
digital media.
