Hi All

Well, it has been a little over three months since my retirement from 
videolibrariandom...  An interesting experiment in letting go.  I've recently 
started a part-time (17 hr a week) gig as coodinator of public services for the 
Judah L. Magnes Museum in Berkeley (www.magnes.org) (now administratively a 
part of UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library) ...something completely new for 
me--both exciting and a bit scary.  It's a contract job, so I'm on for the next 
year.  Then I'll have to reassess.

After a great deal of debate, I think it's probably time for me to pull the 
plug on my videolib subscription at the end of this week.  I'm sad about doing 
this...seems like such a final break with my beloved professional past.  But 
probably best to move on.

Gisele Tanasse, Operations Supervisor in the Berkeley Media Center, will be 
managing the list after my departure (at least in the short-run).  Pls address 
queries to her at gtana...@library.berkeley.edu

My email is hand...@berkeley.edu and I'd love to stay in touch.  I'd be glad to 
continue bouncing ideas around and sharing whatever professional wisdom I have 
(as long as the shelf-life is still good) with librarian colleagues or with 
film distributors or makers.

Salud!

Gary

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues 
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, 
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and 
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective 
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication 
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and 
distributors.
