This is just a note to tell you that the Fall VRT Newsletter will be
winging its way to your mailbox (snail-mail wise, that is) soon. Tom
Fowler is finished crafting and duplicating and is awaiting mailing labels
from ALA. We are sorry for the delay, but the timing will be just perfect
before the Midwinter ALA meetings in San Antonio. I can hardly wait.
I would like to hear from all VRT members on this issue. I'd even like to
hear from potential VRT members and videolist serv lurkers (please indicate
preference here) on this issue. The VRT newsletter is very expensive to
duplicate and, since we are supposed to be one of the more technology-wise
groups in ALA, it seems only logical that we consider putting our
newsletter on our website either as an HTML document or downloadable .pdf
format. So I'd like to hear from people...
1) Do you think putting the VRT Newsletter on our website is a good idea?
(We would probably stop hard copy printing)
2) Do you have access to a PC/web browser and Adobe Acrobat 2.0 or greater?
3) Do you have an individual e-mail address to send the newsletter to?
(this may sound like a dumb question since I'm talking to you over e-mail)
4) What barriers do you see for yourself in placing the newsletter on the
Thanks for your input. Just remember, if I don't hear anything from you
folks, I'm going to bring it up to the Executive Committee and make it
happen - cause right now I think that it's a good idea. Jim Scholtz.
