    At the suggestion of Jim Kammerer of the Montana State Library, we are gathering to discuss how to archive and provide access to video published online by state agencies. Video files tend to be large. They often are not indexed. They lack timestamps or chapters.  The close-captioning files are separate, if they even exist, from the video file.

    This will be an informal information sharing. If you have worked with state agency video, we strongly encourage you to join us and share your experience. 

    We are also looking for a new chair.  I'm happy to answer any questions about what's involved.  - Daniel
