National Media Market Wiki

As I have done the past two years, I have set-up a wiki for the National Media Market: http://nmm2009.wikispaces.com/

I am using Wikispaces for the first time. I decided to give it a try because it has an area for discussion boards, which the previous site did not.

If you purchase media for your library, I highly recommend NMM. It’s a great way to find out what new films are available, to meet and speak with the vendors, and to talk with colleagues. Because it is a small, specialized event, you really get to know people who have similar interests. Although I have attended only two markets in the past, I have already made some wonderful friends and valuable library contacts.

The Market also features a discussion group on the Sunday prior to the official start. The discussion this year will focus on fair use, DMCA and related issues.
