On the international scene, IFLA (International Federation of Library
Associations and Institutions ) holds the annual World
Library and Information Congress. This August it will be in Oslo. The
program is pretty well set but there may be still be some opportunities.
One of the IFLA sections is Audiovisual and Multimedia. There is
also a section on Information Technology and one on Preservation and
Conservation that touch on media issues. The Congress has a large
number of poster sessions.

I have a question for all of you pre-tenured (or tenured) media
librarians. I hope your response will help other media librarians in
this position.

Can you recommend other national conferences or venues where a media
librarian may be able to promote media librarianship (as a presenter,
moderator, or with a poster session) other than ALA, ACRL, CCUM, or
National Media Market. Have any of you had the opportunity to promote
media librarianship at a conference outside of the U.S.? Have you had
the opportunity to collaborate with faculty, and present a paper at a
conference or for publication? If yes, would you be willing to share
some of your topics/ideas.

Your advice is helpful. I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with
other pre-tenured media librarians.

Feel free to contact me off-line if you are not comfortable posting to
the entire list.
