Hi Jarad, Gary H's book (as well as the previous ed) is probably the =
most up-to-date. If you haven't done so, getting in touch with your =
campus library systems person and finding out if their circulation =
system has a booking component (you can book equipment, titles, rooms, =
etc.) - meaning schedule ahead for faculty/student/staff use rather than =
just use the old circulation system. RTI and Paulmar used to make stand =
alone scheduling systems, but now Endeavor, etc. all have some type of =
component. Copyright - lots of information on the web and publications =
about digital millenium Copyright Act. Post your query to the Video =
list serv about organizations for that part - used to be an association =
in Ankeney, IA that was the 'educational copyright police' - they had =
lots of good informational brochures but things have changed a bit with =
campus video streaming, etc.

RTI would be a good place to get information on VHS/DVD cleaning /repair =
issues. I had an article in the LJ AV issue 2005 about comparisons of =
DVD repair units - still valid but there are some new machines out now.

Distributors/vendor situation has changed dramatically in even the past =
2-3 years so you just have to contact vendors, collect catalogs and =
compare prices (many offer two tiered pricing to colleges/based on =
public perform). Best source is Video Librarian and going to =
conferences like NMM. You should know the difference between a =
producer, distributor and a vendor - what they can offer in terms of =
price, product and product rights (including different =
formats/streaming).

In a college environment, it is important to let the instructors have a =
say in what you purchase and just as important to market all your titles =
to the faculty so that they can be used. You might want to develop a =
catalog/on-line/have on-line booking/ have new titles on a blog, e-mail =
specific titles to specific depts. - it all depends on how much work you =
want to do, what kind of budget you have, what your service mandate is. =
One thing I think is really important is that you have a service mission =
and service goals and objectives so that you can document how important =
your service is to the teaching goal - then you can use that as leverage =
for collection, equipment, software, etc. to the administration. Just =
suggestions - hope this helps. Jim Scholtz. =20

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

a.. Do you want information on how to catalog and make your =
collection useable (meaning difference between a booking system and a =
circulation system).=20
=20

a.. Do you want information on vendors, distributors - buying new =
titles? How to make best use of money? Review sources?=20
=20

a.. Do you want information on technology - cleaning/repairing =
tapes/discs? Using/buying video projectors, DVD, blueray, etc.?=20
=20

a.. Do you want information on programming, copyright/public =
performance issues?=20
=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

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.
