Both these leaders collaborated to create the UCLA silent animation preservation program.

The films cover a variety of silent animation productions, and are provided alongside authoritative technical and historical context.

EBSS / VRT Combined Program

Ubiquitous Video: Can libraries offer it? (Or can libraries adapt?)

  • Saturday, June 23, 1:30pm - 3:30pm
    Anaheim Convention Center, ACC-202A
    Description: Is your library embracing the demand for streaming video content? Video is becoming a ubiquitous medium, and educators are demanding more content and easier access. Hear from a librarian, a faculty member, and a content developer as they discuss the changing demands for multimedia access and delivery; how libraries can adapt collection development strategies and access methods to meet these needs; and how video collections are conceptualized to meet the needs of their academic markets.
    Speakers: Claire Stewart, Head, Digital Collections, Northwestern University; Cyndy Scheibe, Associate Professor, Ithaca College; Stephen Rhind-Tutt, President, Alexander Street Press, LLC.
    Co-Sponsors: ACRL EBSS

VRT Booth at ALA Annual 2012

VRT will have a booth at the upcoming Annual Conference in Anaheim, California, and we are seeking volunteers to staff it. It's a great opportunity to promote VRT and video librarianship in general.

We need coverage Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 to 5:00. Two-hour shifts are ideal, but 1-hour shifts are also welcome. We're hoping to have two volunteers for each hour.

If you are attending and can help us out, please let Rhonda Rosen know what days/times you want and she will add you to the schedule. You can view the current schedule on the VRT wiki at this page..
