Thanks for sharing, Deg.  I hope to attend!

You mention that this is "More evidence that the role of the media librarian is 
being assumed by acquisitions..."

This brings up a great topic: professional development! 

If the traditional role of the media librarian is being assumed by 
acquisitions, then what type of professional development do you recommend for 
current media librarians who will need to transform themselves?

Sharing this question on list because in case your response will benefit 
others, but feel free to respond off list.  

Thank you for any advice you can offer!

Best wishes,

 *What is an e-forum?*
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of 
interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum 
discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with 
the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other 
participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two to three days. 
Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free. See a list of upcoming 
e-forums at:
*To register:*
Instructions for registration are available at: Once 
you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless 
you choose to leave the email list. Participation is free and open to anyone.
