Thanks for responding, Jim. The questions you suggest are very good
ones. I have actually been trying to sort through everything I do here
to come up with what questions to ask - to determine what exactly I need
to know. The quick answer is I need to know everything - or at least a
little bit about everything. At the moment I'm not quite sure what I
don't know that I need to know (I'm a noob as they say) - ya know? That
is why I thought it a good idea to attend some
conferences/workshops/seminars about this whole business to start
talking with folks who have done this for awhile. =20

I'm looking into the National Media Market conference, thanks to a call
from Ursula herself. None of the conferences I listed (ACRL, NAMTC,
CCUMC) seem to have any sessions devoted specifically to my needs (as a
beginning Media Librarian). Even the currently listed sessions for the
summer ALA conference have no sessions in this area (at least not yet).
NAMTC and CCUMC seem to be the most specialized in the area of Video
Librarianship, but are devoted more toward Media Centers (that offer
video production and computer graphics software). I just have a growing
video collection with DVD/VHS players and screens - no production (at
least not yet - though this is an area I would like to get into). So,
most - if not all - of their sessions are about such things as
production service, online learning, hardware and A/V issues. Some of
it is helpful, but most is wide of my current situation.

=20

I plan to start visiting other libraries with similar situations (and
inspecting how they do things) and talking with other librarians who
have similar collections -starting with local ones. Looks like this
list is the best place to start. So, I'll continue now....

=20

As to your excellent questions you suggest (I'm repeating them here) -
do you have any specific places or articles or resources that can give
me some information in these specific areas? =20

=20

* Do you want information on how to catalog and make your
collection useable (meaning difference between a booking system and a
circulation system).

=20

* Do you want information on vendors, distributors - buying new
titles? How to make best use of money? Review sources?

=20

* Do you want information on technology - cleaning/repairing
tapes/discs? Using/buying video projectors, DVD, blueray, etc.?

=20

* Do you want information on programming, copyright/public
performance issues?

=20

I have found very little literature (that is not outdated) outside of
Gary's book and a very few articles (library lit has some, but not as
much as I thought). I have not even found much help on the web yet (let
down by Google - hard to fathom). Of course I may be doing something
horribly wrong - I am a noob after all. To be sure, I'd love to have a
"Media Librarianship for Dummies" book. Meantime, I'll keep digging.
Thanks for the help. =20

=20

Standing by for more......

Hi Jared, Wow - sounds exciting - not many pure media librarians around
(or media dept.) anymore. Jim Scholtz here - one of the contributors to
Gary's book. Specifically, I write about technology use and collection
development in libraries. Your question is a good one and it depends on
the topics/subjects that you want to concentrate on.

Here are some questions you might want to ask yourself/staff:

=20

Do you want information on how to catalog and make your collection
useable (meaning difference between a booking system and a circulation
system).

=20

Do you want information on vendors, distributors - buying new titles?
How to make best use of money? Review sources?

=20

Do you want information on technology - cleaning/repairing tapes/discs?
Using/buying video projectors, DVD, blueray, etc.?

=20

Do you want information on programming, copyright/public performance
issues?

=20

ALA VRT is a great place to start and has a good mix of
college/univeristy and public library discussions (emphasis is really ,
PLA also has the AV roundtable but is limited somewhat to the public
library environment. Get involved in program planning in VRT!! (I was a
past Chair and very involved with VRT and it is a great organization
with exceptionally knowledgable and helpful people!!)

=20

The National Media Market is a fantastic place to buy product at great
discounts and has some good conference/table/workshop discussions on
technology, vendors and copyright as well as digital distribution.

=20

Take care. Jim Scholtz.=20

Subject: [Videolib] Video Librarianship from the VERY beginning

=20

Hello,

=20

This is my first post to this list, though I have been lurking
for a few weeks. My colleague, Todd Rix, posted to this list a few weeks
ago about information and resources for newbies. =20

=20

A bit of background: Our library recently suddenly (and without
ample warning) came into possession of a large (about 3500 titles -
mostly VHS) video collection. We inherited it (and all the ancient
viewing stations) from the campus Media Department. I was chosen as the
"Head of Media Collections" and set about trying to make sense of it
all, make it work, and get such a department up and running from
scratch. It has been over a year now, and the use of the collection is
increasing dramatically, we have purchased new viewing equipment and we
are adding to the collection (at least 500 new DVD titles). I think I
almost know what I am doing - mostly.

=20

So, now that we are somewhat on track as a department, I've
decided that I need to get myself up to speed in the field of video
librarianship. So, as a start I've joined this list - along with my
colleague Todd Rix who works part time with me in Media Collections -
when he is not in tech services. And I am reading Gary Handman's good
book "Video Collection Development in Multi-type Libraries." Now I'm
searching for conferences and workshops to attend - and that invariably
leads me to the organizations sponsoring them. My question is: Can
anyone (or everyone) give me some guidance on an initial track to take
as far as to what conferences to attend (at least initially) and what
organizations to join. I have located the following three conferences
and organizations for this year so far:

=20

ACRL Annual Conference

Baltimore - March 29 - April 1

http://www.ala.org/ala/acrl/acrlevents/acrleventsconferences.htm

=20

=20

National Association of Media and Technology Centers (NAMTC) 8th
Leadership Summit=20

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - April 19-22, 2007 =20

http://www.namtc.org/

=20

=20

Consortium of College and University Media Centers (CCUMC)
Annual Conference

Gainesville, Florida - October 18-22

University of Florida

http://www.ccumc.org/

=20

=20

Since money and time are both scarce, I need to maximize my bang
for my buck (and my institution's buck). Which conference should I
target initially? And which organization (since I can't join them all
unfortunately) should get my money and time? Of course the answer will
depend on many variables, but as a person just stepping his hesitant
toes into the video library ocean, I need someone who can swim to give
me advice. Please enlighten me. Thanks. =20

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.
