The MISL team will be attending the Philadelphia ACRL Conference (March 30-April 2, 2011). Join us for a focus group on ideas for improving staffing and preservation for moving image and sound collections in academic libraries. Topics of discussion will include:
- the state of moving image and sound collections in libraries
- the training of moving image caretakers
- whether there is a need for trained moving image specialists in libraries
- the impediments to hiring such professionals
The focus group is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, March 31, 2011, from 6:15-8:00pm, at a location near the Philadelphia Convention Center. If you think you may be interested in participating, please see the full invitation, here.
We hope to see you in Philadelphia!
