VRT members, please pardon the cross-posting.

Looking forward to meeting with many of you at conference. Remember, the
VRT Sunday night gala tickets are complementary this year. I will have
some tickets with me at Friday's pre-conference. Tickets are available
at the ALA Member Pavilion, Booth #2525, beginning Saturday morning at
9:00am. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis -- no
advance reservations.
This shared booth takes the place of the separate VRT booth we've had in
previous years. VRT representatives can be identified by bright red
ribbons on their conference badges. There are no formal arrangements for
a Friday night Executive Board dinner, because of the rush to get from
Washington College of Law to the Convention Center in time for a
screening of the Hollywood Librarian film.
There will be a reception with food and beverage from 3:00 - 3:30 at the
pre-conference. So, for those attending the pre-conference, a light
dinner may be in order. In any case, we will informally decide where to
eat, probably in the area of Gallery Place & the Verizon Center, which
are near to the Convention Center.=20
Please note, the annual "VRT Pocket Guide" to conference is posted to
the VRT Main page, so you may want to print it out: www.ala.org/vrt

For those attending the pre-conference, here's how to Metro to American
University, Washington College of Law:
* Metro - Tenleytown Metrostation:
This stop is located adjacent to the Tenleytown [Red Line] Metrorail
station. The stop is located by Hollywood Video. Directional signs have
been installed within and outside of the station to direct passengers to
the AU Shuttle stop.=20
* WCL:
The stop is located on the 48th Street side of the building. It is the
same stop the smaller AU Shuttle bus uses.
* WCL is located at 4801 Mass. Ave (not on the Main Campus)
* There is limited paid garage parking available

See you all soon in the Nation's Capital! Lisbeth Goldberg, VRT Chair

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.
