M/AV SIS Programs Feature Breaking Technology News and Roman Law

The Micrographics/Audiovisual SIS is pleased to continue its excellent tradition of programming at the 2007 AALL Annual Meeting. In addition, on Sunday, July 15th, 12:00noon-1:15pm, in the Hilton Grand Salon 4, current members and those interesting in becoming members should plan to attend the M/AV SIS Business Meeting. Here we will review M/AV SIS projects and programs, as well as discuss educational programming for the 2008 AALL Annual Meeting.

On Sunday, July 15th, 5:30pm-6:30pm, in the Hilton Grand Salon 3, the M/AV SIS Roundtable will present Mandatory Digital TV: Technological Triumph or Information-Access Tragedy? Laura Ray, Educational Programming Librarian at the Cleveland State University Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and Terrence McCormack, Head, M. Robert Koren AV Center and AV Librarian at the State University of New York at Buffalo, will present a comprehensive history of the events surrounding the mandatory digital television policy and moderate discussion of the legal and ethical issues surrounding this policy. The M/AV SIS Roundtable will not conflict with formal programs, as well as provide Annual Meeting attendees a final educational session before their Sunday receptions and dinners.

You will have to decide between two M/AV SIS programs on Monday, July 16th, 8:45am-10:15am. One option, in Convention Center Room 211-213, will be D-3. Electronic Preservation: Does Losing the Past Challenge the Future? This program will present a debate between two authorities who advocate conflicting theories about electronic preservation, a purely digital approach that places its reliance upon open systems and mass storage devices, and a hybrid approach including analog systems as archival insurance. This program is being co-sponsored by the State, Court & County Law Libraries SIS. It will be coordinated by John Pedini, Director of Media Services at the Social Law Library, moderated by Jonathan Stock, Supervising Law Librarian at the Connecticut Judicial Branch - Law Library at Stamford, and the speakers will include Victoria Reich, Director of the LOCKSS Program at Stanford University Libraries, and Jerry Dupont, Executive Director of the Law Library Microform Consortium. The other option, in Convention Center Room 215/216, will be D-6. Rome: the Power of Film to Teach Foundations of Roman and Civil Law. This program will demonstrate the educational opportunities afforded by audiovisual materials, as it draws upon the powerful images of the HBO series “Rome,” to explain key elements of Roman Law. This program is being co-sponsored by the Legal History and Rare Books SIS and the Foreign, Comparative & International Law SIS. It will be coordinated and moderated by Laura Ray, and the speakers will include Bernard Keith Vetter, the Ted and Louana Frois Distinguished Professor of International Law Studies at the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law.
