Re: [Videolib] Have you seen an amazing video lately?

Hi Susan,

It was great to see you too. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the galleries in Scottsdale.

I just got your nomination for Discovering the Human Brain. Thanks! In the Tall Grass was on the 2007 Notable Videos for Adults list we did in January so you don't need to submit that one. Go ahead and fill out a nomination form for the stem cell one with as much information as possible. I'm not likely to snail mail them, so a URL and phone number should be adequate.

All the best,
Vicki

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.
