The MIC (Moving Image Collections) initiative, a collaborative between the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) and the Library of Congress, is interested in your feedback to better assess how we are doing, where we can improve, and what future strategic directions to take. As many of you are aware, MIC documents moving image collections around the world through a catalog of titles and directory of repositories. It provides a technology base and informational resources to support research, collaboration, and preservation. It is a portal for integrating moving images into 21st Century education and a key access program of the Library of Congress' National Audio Visual Conservation Center in Culpeper, Virginia.
Please take a few moments to visit the MIC site (http://mic.loc.gov), then complete the MIC Evaluation Survey by clicking on the link under 'In the Spotlight.'
The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. If you have any questions, please email MIC Project Manager Jane D. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those completing the survey by Friday, September 8, will be entered into a drawing for a boxed DVD set, Treasures from American Film Archives.
Thank you in advance for your participation and contribution.

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.
