The BLC Media Community of Interest (COI) serves as a forum for discussing the issues and developments in the field of audiovisual media from analog to digital formats. The group explores traditional themes of audiovisual media collections, services and best practices in academic libraries and emerging trends related to streaming media and beyond.
The COI expects to:
- Provide a community for the wide range of BLC members who are concerned with streaming and analog media.
- Stay current with technologies by exploring trends, exchanging information, testing and sharing practical applications.
- Establish relationships with vendors working with streaming media and digitization.
- Stay abreast of related areas such as copyright, accessibility and preservation.
- Provide outreach to communities outside of BLC where relevant.
Membership is open to all BLC librarians interested in and responsible for audiovisual media or related topics.
The COI meets occasionally throughout the year.
For more information on a recent project involving three of the member libraries in a collection analysis to identify rare and unique audio visual materials that may be at risk, please see the BLC at risk media project page.
