Hi Monique,
The deadline for poster session for Toronto has passed, however, there
bound to be sessions on media and related issues. I have always found
something of value anytime I have attended. See Website for more info:

Also, the Online Audiovisual Catalogers hold their biennial conference
(was in
Minneapolis last Fall) and have poster sessions as well.
See Website for abstracts:

Hello everyone,

This is a silly question.

Does anyone know if there are any opportunities for a poster session at
Annual or at any other venue showcasing media collection, or a specific
topic within media?

Thanks in advance.
Monique L. Threatt

Every year at Annual Conference, VRT presents at least one program as
as the Gala. This year's program in Toronto (presented with ACRL-ARTS)
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
Annual, with good food & company in interesting venues. Previous Galas
included the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, a Bay cruise in San Francisco, and
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
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
of activities can we join (besides the executive meetings) as media
librarian, and what will there be at the VRT Gala?
