2nd Call: VRT Notable Films for Adults Committee Call for Juror

The Notable Videos for Adults Committee still has one remaining vacancy to fill this year.  We aim for a balanced mix of librarians from academic, public, and special libraries who work with media and serve adult populations.   This is an opportunity to serve on a rewarding and enjoyable professional committee at the national level.  Representatives or employees of video producers or distributors are ineligible.

Each member will serve a term of two years, with a maximum number of consecutive terms not to exceed two, for a total of four years of service.

 All committee members are required to:

•        Be members of the American Library Association (ALA) and the Video Round Table (VRT),

•     Attend ALA Midwinter for two consecutive years (Denver in February 2018 and Seattle in January 2019),

•     View and evaluate a substantial number of videos leading up to ALA Midwinter (For example, in 2016, over 60 titles were screened).

For complete information about the committee please visit our web page:  http://www.ala.org/vrt/notablevideos/

 If you are interested in volunteering for the committee, please respond directly to me by April 28th.  Indicate your membership status with ALA and VRT, your ability to commit to attending ALA Midwinter, and include information regarding your experience with videos (e.g., collection development, reviewing, viewer’s advisory, etc.).  Please contact me if you have any questions.

 Sincerely,

Kati Perez
