Gary, I just tried to post this response to Laura Fu's query, but it bounced
- are you willing to post it for us? Trying to give away 5 tickets to VRT
Gala. Happy to re-work it for the vendor list if you think that's best.

All best,

Subject: [Videolib] Question from TV librarian & 1st time ALA attendee

Good morning,

First off, my apologies for the possible cross postings through listservs. I
hope this email may find its way to other people of similar work and
interests. I consider myself a TV/video librarian. My background, education
and experience is in TV news production with a focus on TV news archives.
Despite 7 years in the field, this will be my first ALA conference. I
would've like to have been able to afford the SLA conference too, but with
this economy, I am at least thankful that the ALA conference is so close by
this year.

Does anyone have any suggestions for lectures or events to attend? As I have
noticed in my schooling and networking, those with my interest are few and
far between. I want to make the most out of my first conference, but there
don't seem to be many relevant topics for TV, video or news librarianship.
Aside from the CALA banquet on Sunday, Conference 101 and an event entitled
"Film & Broadcast Librarians Disc. Group", I'm at a loss.

Any advice? Any other attendees with similar backgrounds who would like to
meet up? I'm a Chicagoan who knows the area really well.

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.
