Call for Proposals for ALA Annual in Chicago: Video & Libraries

Thinking about attending the ALA Annual Conference, June 22-27 2017 in Chicago? Have you worked on any projects or activities involving film or video at your institution?

 The ALA Video Round Table Program Committee (VRT) welcomes program proposals for ALA Annual on just about anything related to video and libraries! The term video includes moving picture media in all of its forms - DVDs, streaming, video tapes, video art, YouTube videos, animation, iPhone shot footage, etc.

 Proposals are due SOON, August 31, 2016!

 Sample ideas (but we very much welcome others):

  • Are you finding new ways to promote films to your community?

  • Are you doing anything interesting in curating your film collections?

  • Have you made library promotional videos?

  • Have you created video tutorials?

  • Are you using film clips (or gifs) in instruction?

  • Have you created a media center for your patrons?

  • Do you work with your patrons in video creation?

  • Are you involved with film or video preservation?

  • Have you offered special film programming/events at your library?
