Lib-media-coll -- Library Film & Media Collections


About Lib-media-coll
English (USA)

This list serves the The Film & Media Studies/Collections Special Interest Group and will offer a forum for library employees to discuss, implement, and assess strategies and tools underpinning the scholarly ecosystem that supports the use of moving-images and time-based media in research and instruction. As film and media are valuable assets across all academic disciplines, the group will focus on ways in which FSU Libraries can enhance its capabilities to collect, preserve, and provide access to collections and resources. This Special Interest Group can also serve as a place to consolidate information related to faculty needs in order to streamline collection development, implementation of services and policies, and instructional programming across campus

Further, this Special Interest Group can serve as a space for focused attention on grappling with the changing landscape of media acquisitions in the age of digital streaming and quickening format obsolescence. Faculty and staff from across the library can share their expertise in guiding the Library through the often unclear and uncertain paths related to media collections management, care, and access. Such a space would be incredibly valuable for ensuring both the Library’s ROI for its media holdings and bolstering its own self-sufficiency as a research repository.
