Does VRT or the videolib community include any kind of a 'digital video=

tools and techniques are fascinating, but I would love to be able to si=

discuss=A0targeted topics, perhaps even to define a library research ag=

for digital video. =A0 =A0I'm also an AMIA member, and that group does =
have a
large and flourishing digital initiatives committee, but I seem to be o=
ne
of the few media librarian-types in that group, and I'd welcome the cha=

to have these discussions in a library as well as an archival setting.

So...if there's already such an interest group, where do I sign up?=A0 =
If
not, would anyone like to help me start one, or be interested in
participating in any capacity?

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.
