RSVP for any or all three events to Debra (d.mandel@neu.edu) by January 6th, 2010.
Please give Debra your cell phone number in case there are any last minute changes.


 1. JFK Library Visit: Friday, January 15, 3- 6PM
 2. Emerson College Library Visit: Saturday, January 16, 5-6 PM
 3. Legal Seafood Dinner: Saturday, January 16 7 PM

Public Transportation Costs:
The T is (usually) a subway. The Silver Line, however, is actually a bus.
The fare is 1.70 with a Charlie card, or 2.00 with a Charlie ticket.
We recommend getting a Charlie card, (which is plastic as opposed to the paper ticket) because it gives you the cheaper fare.
We hope the link works, but if not, try to go to www.mbta.com , and look up Charlie card info there.
You can get them at T stops, or, if you want to be totally proactive, you can order them online.

For those nite owls, Debra will provide some listings of possibilities, via the listserv and at the conference.
If you are interested in getting tickets for plays or concerts in advance check out www.Boston.com, arts and entertainment listings: http://www.boston.com/ae/?p1=GN_AE

Remember, Maureen Tripp, Iwasaki Library, Emerson College, and I are ready to be your guides. We're looking forward to seeing you!

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.
