well, yeah...dozens of them over the past 30 years: ALA, NMM, ACRL,
Nevada Library Assn., Florida Library Association...

I'd suggest working thru the American Library Assn Video Round Table or
your local library association. Or perhaps CCUMC, if you're in higher ed.
Can't have too many programs devoted to media!

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.
