Can you add a list of vendor/distributors for documentary film makers -- I have some students who working on looks like a pretty cool production of footage about Hurricane Katrina and it's be nice to point them to potential distributors.

Hi Gary,

Firstly, I hope my invitation was not inappropriate...I know some list owners would see an announcement such as this as "spam."  As a list member and contributor to VIDEOLIB, I have appreciated the information and lively discourse that it provides. 

I see an associative relationship between VIDEOLIB and Multimedia Librarian.  I do not intend to limit my content to information related to the video format; hopefully it will contain a repository of information/resources related to many non-print formats, including audio and instructional technologies (distance learning platforms, multimedia tutorials) that are of importance to librarians. 

Often times I see topics brought up on listservs that have been previously discussed and think it would be nice to have a common destination for revisiting the *sources* of information upon which many of the contributors base their comments
(e.g. copyright law).  I would like to see that information pooled. 

So...if it works out, great.  If not, it was an experiment.

Eric

Hello Eric

What do you envision as the relationship between your wiki and this list?

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.
