Media Collections

Beyond Text: Libraries Create and Deliver Access to Rich-media Collections, January 26, 2005, 8 AM to 9 AM Pacific. Presented by Marshall Breeding
Today's information environment goes far beyond plain text. Some of the more compelling content comes in the form of digital images, sound, and video. Libraries interested in building well-rounded collections need the ability to incorporate all these types of resources.

Based on his experience with the large-scale digital video collections of the Vanderbilt Television News Archive and other multimedia collections at Vanderbilt University, Breeding will present an overview of the issues, standards, and technologies surrounding rich media formats. He will describe some of the personnel, hardware, software, and other infrastructure needed to successfully tackle a digital project.

Thanks Dynix for this series of talks.
