I will actually be in Chicago during ALA and plan to see a lot of you guys
but alas I can't go to VRT as it conflicts with a more important event, CUBS
Vs CARDINALS ( stupid Sunday night game).

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.
