I don't know specific titles, family fare not being my usual preference, but
you direct your Children's Services selectors to Questar's vast holdings of
G-rated and family fare. They have feature films, documentaries and
television series, many from Canadian and Australian TV, very G-rated and
sweet to a fault. All Things Family is another provider of such material,
and if they're comfortable with an overt Christian component to the vids,
Gateway Films/Vision Video has a large selection including my cataloging
bete noir, the Cherub Wings series of high-pitched, electronically-voiced

Hello, everyone!

I would like to call upon y'all's collective expertise. I have not seen any
questions about children's programming on the listserv before, so I hope it
is appropriate for me to post here.

My library's Children's Services department is looking for movies or
documentaries that meet the following criteria:

--G rating, but with an all ages appeal
--less than 100 minutes
--available to purchase on DVD
--dealing with the theme of animals or wilderness

Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated!

I would recommend the Association of Moving Image Archivists

There is an annual conference (This year in Austin, TX in late November as
well as a journal, Tee Moving Image, and a quarterly newsletter. In terms
of Committees that may overlap with media librarianship, there is the
Education Committee, the Cataloguing Committee and the Academic-Archival

Interest Group.

We also have a scholarship-fellowship program and, since I was on the
selection committee for a number of year, several recipients where from
Library Schools.
