Hello Kathy,

A selection of some new design titles from VEA Inc (Video Education
America):

Design for Sustainability
Sustainable design is the art of designing physical objects to comply
with the principles of economic, social and ecological sustainability.
It ranges from the microcosm of designing small objects for everyday
use, through to the macrocosm of designing buildings, cities and the
earth?s physical surface. The essential aim of sustainable design is to
produce places, products and services in a way that reduces use of non
renewable resources, minimizes environmental impact and relates people
with the natural environment.

Sustainable Communities: What People Want?
This program explores: What are sustainable communities and how can they
be achieved? It talks to architects, planners, civic leaders, local
residents, businesses and young people in three separate localities and
looks at how each is responding to the challenge of creating a
sustainable community. Is it well designed, well built and
environmentally sensitive? What transport links does it have, what sort
of leisure, health, retail services are provided? Is it well run, safe
and fair for everyone? This resource will provide examples, models and
ideas to help in the teaching of sustainable geography and will inspire
and engage students to get them asking: Is my community sustainable? The
DVD also contains teaching materials. This program explores: What are
sustainable communities and how can they be achieved?

The Design Process
The content of this program is practically based, taking the viewer,
step by step through the production of a food product using the
components of the design process. The program simultaneously looks at
using the design process in a commercial and domestic setting. By using
the commercial and domestic settings side by side, strong links can be
developed to the real life context of the design process used in a
classroom setting.
The program is based on a number of interviews with industry experts who
share and display their skills and knowledge on various areas of the
design process. Visual demonstrations of the processes give an in depth
and engaging insight into the development of a food product from start
to finish within a large commercial company.

Hi,

Does anyone know of a few titles for videos which introduce interior
design concepts. We would like something that relates design to larger
aspects of the the world, like sustainability or socio-economic issues
versus picking out pillows. It would be nice to give the students a
larger concept of design.

Thanks!

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.
