All,


A few months ago we sent out a request for those self identifying as
"video librarians" or those in charge of managing video collections at
their institutions to participate in one or more surveys on those
subjects. We have now finished the surveys and have initial summary
data back that we would like to share with you. You can access the PDF
files with the summaries on the VRT (ALA Video Round Table) website at:
http://www.ala.org/ala/vrt/vrtresources/vrt2007surveys.htm


We will be doing additional analyses of the data over the next several
months and hope to report on it in one or more publications or
presentations. We would encourage any of you that would like us to
focus on particular areas to let us know, as we would like to be able to
present on those areas of most interest to librarians. Also, if you
have any questions or comments, feel free to contact either of us directly.

Also newly available at the VRT website and of possible interest to
media librarians are the notes of the 2007 meeting of the Digital Media
Discussion Group, which meets annually at ALA Midwinter Conferences to
discuss a variety of issues pertaining to digital media and libraries:

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.
