June 16, 2010We will be at the annual Conference of the American Library Association (June 24-29, 2010). On Friday June 25, from 2:30 - 5:00pm we will be conducting a focus group with members of ALA's Video Round Table. The topics of discussion will be
- the state of moving image and sound collections in libraries,
- current preservation and access practices,
- the training of moving image caretakers,
- whether there is a need for trained moving image specialists in libraries,
- and what the impediments are to hiring such professionals.
