Participate in MLA’12: Submit Video for MLA Section Program

The deadline for video submission is Feb 10, 2012 which is two days BUT that is not impossible….
Because you can even film it using your iPhone or other mobile device.

Below is the original call for video submissions:

You can still participate in MLA 2012!  
Submit a video for: Smells Like Team Spirit: Partnerships to Move Your Library Forward
Sponsored by the Leadership & Management Section; Cosponsored by: Cancer Section, Corporate Information Services Section, Institutional Animal Care and Use SIG, Veterinary Medical Libraries Section

How does your library achieve collaboration nirvana?   Who does your team work with in and out of your organization?  Do you have librarians embedded in other departments?  Do you work with other departments, libraries, or organizations on grants or projects?  Who are your partners and how do they view your relationship?

For this session, we are seeking three to five minute video clips featuring staff from partner organizations talking about what partnering with a health sciences library means to them. Video clips featuring partner organizations must be submitted in collaboration with a MLA member.  The MLA member submitting the video will need to register attend MLA ’12 onsite or electronically.

Videos submission will be accepted until February 10, 2012.

A peer review panel will judge the videos.  The top seven videos submitted will be shown during the program session.  All submitted videos that meet the length requirement will be available after the conference on the Leadership & Management Section YouTube Channel.  

What will determine the top seven?
Video criteria

To submit a video complete the following form and email your video to MLA12.LMS@  If the form is not completed, then it cannot be loaded to the MAL12LMS channel (due to legal issues.)  Videos must be sent to MLA12.LMS@ and the Google Form completed by February 10, 2012.

Video Guidelines

Videos must be no longer than five minutes.  The MLA member submitting may want to introduce the context of the partnership or may have a conversation with someone from the partner organization about the impact of working with a health sciences librarian and his or her organization.  

Videos must be in Apple QuickTime Movie .mov, AVI Format .avi, Windows Media Format .wmv, or MPEG Format .mpg or .mpeg formats.  You can film your partner and comments with your iPhone or other mobile device.  Informal videos are fine but please ensure that there is adequate lighting and you and your partner are clearly heard on the video.  Videos over 5 minutes will NOT be reviewed for inclusion in either the Smells Like Team Spirit: Partnerships to Move Your Library Forward session or the MLA12LMSProgram’s YouTube Channel after MLA.
