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.

Whether your library plans to produce its own multimedia digital collection or just needs to provide access to resources with digital audio, video, or images, you'll want to tune in to this Institute.
