Cecelia--Are these going to be circulated out of the building or used for in-house programming? You didn't say, and that will make a great deal of difference in some of the possible sources. For in-house programs you will either need to purchase materials with public performance rights or buy a site license. If they are leaving the building with patrons you don't have that issue to deal with.

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
well as a journal, Tee Moving Image, and a quarterly newsletter. In
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.
