Overview to Course Materials
Welcome to the S621 Web class that focuses on digital audio and video library collections.
This website was designed primarily as a SLIS graduate course offered at Indiana University-Indianapolis; however the materials are available to anyone who wants to learn more about how librarians and educators develop, manage, produce, and use audio and video collections.
This three credit hour course focuses on decision making in the digital audio and video information environment. This includes collection development, management, and organization with emphasis on the evaluation, selection, and use of a wide range of low to high tech audio and visual media. Issues such as access, organization, promotion, multimedia copyright, and censorship will be discussed. Multimedia literacy as well as integration of multimedia resources into the K12 and higher education curriculum and public library environment will be explored. Tools and techniques for developing and disseminating audio and visual elements will be examined. Finally, remote and emerging technologies will be highlighted.
