Hi. Sorry I didn't pick up on this thread earlier. I also wasn't sure what you meant by "college access," but if you're looking for programs on accessibility issues for students with disabilities, the following title may be of interest.


"Colleges and universities have begun to expand their efforts to integrate and accommodate students with learning disabilities. In the process, though, they have sometimes failed to take account of the different needs and experiences of students from diverse racial and/or ethnic backgrounds. A Culture Undiscovered explores the interplay between cultural and educational issues as they are experienced in the daily lives of six students from African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic or Latino backgrounds..."

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
