We're very excited to be hosting this Midwinter's Customer Appreciation Breakfast again this year in Dallas, TX.

This time, you’ll hear about new video collections in many more disciplines, the fast growth of VAST: Academic Video Online, new full-text collections in gay and lesbian studies, anthropology, twentieth-century religious writing, and more—and new technologies, including an unprecedented way for your users to interact with media. And our guest speaker is one of today’s most notable documentary filmmakers.

You’ve watched the public-television series Prohibition (last month), Baseball: The Tenth Inning (last year), The War (2007), andFrank Lloyd Wright (1998). You can quickly name the co-producer who’s in the spotlight—Ken Burns.  Do you know the other—equally sharing the directing and producing credits?

Come to our ALA customer breakfast to meet and hear Lynn Novick, whom The New York Times called “A Steady Presence Out of the Limelight”. Several Ken Burns / Lynn Novick film series are in Alexander Street’s American History in Video.  Ms. Novick is a Yale alumna who worked in research at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, at WNET public television in New York, and as associate producer for Bill Moyers, before joining up with Mr. Burns. We’re thrilled to have Ms. Novick as our guest speaker!

At the breakfast, you will also learn about:

  • Developments in VAST: Academic Video Online – our multidisciplinary streaming video product growing quickly to 20,000 titles.
  • A new technology that will radically change the way users interact with online information!  We can’t tell you more now, but you’ll want to be here to find out.
  • A brand-new way for you to bring your own content to the Alexander Street platform.
  • Classical Scores Library: Volume II—live this month.
  • Anthropology Online—live this month, the highly anticipated full-text companion to Ethnographic Video Online.
  • Gay and Lesbian Thought and Culture—live in mid-2012.
  • The March of Time—live early in 2012, the landmark newsreel project (1930s – 1960s) that put Time magazine into theatres and on television.
  • New global newsreels going into World History in Video.
  • Classical Music in Video—live early 2012, bringing classical performances to Alexander Street’s video offerings.
  • ...and more. Please join us!
