MIC: Moving Image Collections is now soliciting entries for its
international online directory of moving image repositories. Whether you
are a moving image archive, or simply hold a few film titles as part of a
larger general collection, we invite you to register your organization with
MIC. By listing your institution, you join a groundbreaking initiative to
provide access to moving images worldwide, and contribute to further
collaboration, research, and mentoring in the archival moving image
community. Any institution holding moving image materials is eligible for a
Directory entry.

To complete an Archive Directory form with:

a.. contact information
b.. services and collection descriptions
c.. cataloging and preservation activities
go to: http://gondolin.rutgers.edu/MIC/text/how/directory_guidelines.htm.
Submit your form in hard copy using a PDF form (type or complete by hand,
then mail), or complete it in Word for easy emailing. Web input form coming
soon.

We need a significant number of completed Directory entries in order to
program the complex interactions between the Directory, the Union Catalog,
and the Website. Please participate in this critical area of MIC
development!

For more information, please contact MIC Project Coordinator Jane Johnson:
jdj@ucla.edu.

Moving Image Collections (MIC, pronounced 'mike') is a Portal for discovery
of moving images and resources to facilitate collaborative cataloging,
preservation, exhibition, and digitization activities. It includes a union
catalog, international directory of moving image repositories, cataloging
utility, education/outreach space, and dynamic and static portals based on
user-selected criteria.

MIC is a collaboration between the Association of Moving Image Archivists
(AMIA) and the Library of Congress. It has received funding from the
National Science Foundation and is a participant in the National Science
Digital Library. Alpha implementer sites, all with significant moving image
collections in analog and digital format, include the Library of Congress,
Cable News Network (CNN), Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies,
National Geographic Television, National Library of Medicine, Northeast
Historic Film, Oregon Health and Sciences University, Pacific Film Archive,

Collection at the Internet Archive, ResearchChannel, the Smithsonian
Institution, and Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research.

The Library of Congress will host MIC. Developer sites are Rutgers, the
State University of New Jersey, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the
University of Washington.

See the MIC Project website (http://gondolin.rutgers.edu/MIC/) for new

ongoing review and will be accessible from the MIC project website. The MIC
project website is updated frequently, so check back often!
