NVR/PBS Teleconference

Tue, 15 Apr 1997 14:36:11 -0400 (EDT)

"Video, CD-ROM and Beyond: Motion Media and the Library of the Future" is the
videoconference being broadcast live nationwide on Thursday, May 15, from
1:00-3:00 ET. It will originate from KRMA in Denver, and is being produced
by National Video Resources through the PBS Adult Learning Service. It is
funded by the Annenberg-CPB Project, the AT&T Foundation and the John D. and
Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The program will be hosted by Gary Handman (MRC Director, UC Berkeley), and
will feature Ken Dowlin on building the library of the future; Greg Lubelski
(Geauga Co. Lib., Ohio) on CD-ROM collections, Kristine Brancolini (Indiana
U.) on multimedia evaluation, and a panel discussion on issues surrounding
emerging technologies in libraries with the above, as well as Gordon Conable
(Dir., Monroe Co. Lib., Michigan), Jim Scholtz (Dir., Yankton Pub. Lib., So.
Dakota) and Lin Forrest (Nevada Dept. of Ed.) Executive producers for the
videoconference are yours truly (Sally Mason-Robinson) and Debra Franco.

We hope that all "Videolibbers" will attend--and bring others on the library
staff. This is a program that will have material to appeal to library
administrators, as well as our media folk.
