American Libraries Live - Video Livecasts

New free streaming video broadcasts, AL Live

The audio of this first broadcast is a little jumpy in parts; hopefully this will be cleared up in future episodes.

"AL Live, is the new free streaming video broadcast from American Libraries. In the first episode, author and ALA TechSource columnist Jason Griffey moderates a discussion on libraries in the near future, with an expert panel including Marshall Breeding (independent consultant, speaker, and author), Nina McHale (Web Developer at the Arapahoe Library District, Englewood, CO), and Rebecca K. Miller (College Librarian for Science, Life Sciences, and Engineering at Virginia Tech)."
