Depending on the scope of your responsibilities at your university another great option is the Consortium of College and University Media Centers conference.

A lot of programming on media content issues, as well as sessions on smart classrooms, managing support services such as public computing and print managament. Interest group sessions on emerging technologies, small institutions, collection development, management, etc.

The focus is entirely on academic instititutions, no public library content. Excellent opportunity to meet other media professionals and share problems and successes.

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.
