www Library Media Project


Sadly, the Library Media Project, which began in 1988, will be closing our office doors on the last day of April 2007, after over 18 years assisting U.S. librarians with their media collection development on a wide range of important subjects.

Our mission has been "to foster the public discourse that is central to our American democracy one library at a time".

Thomas Jefferson observed that "Information is the currency of democracy". It was an honor to contribute to these thousands and thousands of "information banks" – our country’s libraries - for the past 18 years.

It was our good fortune to work with the amazing librarians who vigilantly keep the doors to free information open and accessible for so many Americans.

We will never forget the crucial role of the public, school and academic libraries are to the very heart of our democracy.

We have been honored to have worked with so many remarkable, innovative and thoughtful librarians. They are, and always will be, our heroes.

We hope you find this exploration of "The Visual Arts" a useful, interesting and valuable resource as you continue to build your library's media collection.

IMPORTANT: Please see announcement above.

"VideoCuration: the Visual Arts" celebrates the contributions of artists from around our global community. The collection explores mainstream art genres as well as significant regions and periods from the Visual Arts world landscape.

Nadine Covert, a leading scholar librarian in the field of art on film, has selected the titles in this collection from the highly regarded collection of documentaries from Home Vision. Her curator's essay gives valuable insight into the strengths and value of titles in the collection. We are excited by her curation, which offers a rich texture of diverse artists and art genres and of art histories and cultures.

IMPORTANT: Please see announcement above.

Over the last seventeen years, the Library Media Project established itself as a resource for authoritative collections of high quality film and video material for public libraries. Over these years, we worked with more than 3,100 libraries that serve 209 million people. We hoped to help construct bridges to the pluralistic cultures that make our society and our country so vibrant and interesting.
