If you'll be attending ALA in Seattle, I hope you'll consider attending
the following session, which is sponsored by the Video Round Table.
Digital Media Discussion Group
Saturday, January 20, 2007 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Location: Washington State Convention & Trade Center, Room 210/211*
Those of you who attended last year will note that the block of time was
expanded by a half-hour. Hopefully this will allow us to dig into more
of the complex issues that we're all facing in our libraries.
This will be an exchange of ideas for anyone interested to talk about
projects concerning digital media that are taking place at their
libraries, or to ask for others' experience with new issues on the
horizon. It is informal -- there's no agenda we need to stick to -- but
I wanted to draw up a list of peoples' interests in this area as a
discussion starter, perhaps with some resources available concerning
those areas. Here are some of the big issues -- some of which we'll be
revisiting from last year's discussion (the more things change...) :
* Market Technologies: High Definition Formats
* Video Gaming and Collections
* Podcasting, Vodcasting, and Audio Books
* Digital Streaming and Content Providers
* Multimedia Production in Libraries
If anyone has any other interests / topics in this area on their mind
(or helpful resources in these areas to share), please let me know.

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.
