Every year at Annual Conference, VRT presents at least one program as well
as the Gala. This year's program in Toronto (presented with ACRL-ARTS) is
about Independent filmmaking in Canada, with guest(s) TBA. Last year's
program was "Media Space Facilities for the 21st Century" and the year
before was "Reel Nitty Gritty: Secrets of Video Librarianship Revealed."
See for full descriptions of these

This year's Gala will be held at the Nat'l Film Board of Canada and theme is
"An Evening of Canadian Animation." Gala is one of the coolest events at
Annual, with good food & company in interesting venues. Previous Galas have
included the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, a Bay cruise in San Francisco, and a
discussion with Studs Terkel at Facets in Chicago.

There's a lot more to VRT, so please visit our homepage at

Dear ALA conference organizers/video libers,

I've never been to any ALA conferences and I'm interested to broaden my
scope and see one. Are there any workshops for Media Librarians? I
browsed the workshop list and didn't find any relevant to us. What kind
of activities can we join (besides the executive meetings) as media
librarian, and what will there be at the VRT Gala?
