Whether you’re interested in coordinating multimedia makerspaces and video game clubs in a public library, directing a Digital Media Commons in an academic library, creating movie trailers with students and promoting audiobook reading in school libraries, or coordinating audio and video collections in special libraries, this course is for you.

From circulating feature films and jazz music to creating podcasts and original video programming, librarians are involved with a wide range of digital audio and video sources. This three-graduate hour course focuses on decision making involving digital audio, video, and interactive media including video games in library settings. This includes collection development, management, production, and use. Issues such as access, marketing, copyright, and censorship will be discussed. Listening and viewing advisory services, multimedia literacy as well as integration of audio and video resources in all library settings will be explored. Tools and techniques for producing and disseminating audio and visual elements will be examined.

This course explores both the theory and practice involved with audio and video sources.
