Moscone Convention Center - 2000 (W) Increasingly, scholars are producing works in non-traditional genres and mediums, published using alternative platforms. This presentation will describe some of the trends and unique affordances of multimodal scholarship across the digital arts, sciences and humanities domains, with an emphasis on the video format. Examples discussed include innovative multimodal digital art scholarship, a recent study on science journal digital video abstracts, and multimodal digital humanities publications. We will also discuss the potential implications of these emerging areas of scholarship on librarians and library services, illustrated by two case studies of multimodal digital humanities projects in libraries - Community Voices at the University of Washington (Bothell) and Immigrant Stories at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities).

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.
