I found out about this show last week and since it is on my birthday I plan to attend! It sounds like a great opportunity to really focus on the issues and to visit with vendors who do not make the usual library trade shows.

I would suggest attending the National Media Market this October in Mesa, AZ. There are so many wonderful independent documentaries and films that can't be obtained through general vendors. This is a great market to attend....view, discuss, collaborate and network. The general ones are ok for feature films or for general consumer titles, but the most valuable titles for my institution come from independent filmmakers. These contain viewpoints, ideas, and information that students need to hear and see. For example: Women Make Movies, First Run Icarus, Bullfrog, Cinema Guild, Filmakers, Fanlight, Aquarius, are just a few. (Please forgive me as this list is not exclusive, but just a sampling. See the list of distributors at www.nmm.net)

Blackwell, Book House, and Ambassador are our biggest supplier of domestic videos. We also order videos from several specialized video vendors like Facets Video, Follett Media, Insight Media, and Bullfrog. If your video selections are American movies, they would almost certainly have come from one of these large vendors.

There are also a few specialized video vendors like Films for the Humanities and Sciences, which deals in educational videos.

For international videos weve used Susan Bach in Brazil and Harrassowitz in Germany.

But if you want a diverse collection you have to use many different vendors its seems to be the nature of the business. :\

Dear Colleagues,
My job of media acquisitions has recently been transferred to the library from the informational technology center and my new boss has asked me to look for ways to streamline the acquisitions process. We are wondering if any of you are aware of any one vendor that we could use to preview and order items from. Presently we use a number of vendors and shop around for the best price. I know that because of the wide range of specialties it might be hard to find just one vendor but any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated.
