Films Media Group to Sponsor Librarians for National Media Market and Conference 2018

Films Media Group, an Infobase Company, agreed today to sponsor up to four registrations to the 2018 National Media Market and Conference (NMM) for librarians who collect media for community colleges. This sponsorship will benefit librarians who wish to attend but don’t have conference funding in their budgets. Films Media Group provides high-quality video on academic, vocational and life-skills topics to schools, colleges, libraries, the medical community, and other institutions. NMM will administer the sponsored scholarships to community college librarians who qualify as participating in film and video related purchasing decisions at their institutions. A special application form on the conference website is available for librarians who wish to apply. All applications will be reviewed, and recipients notified, by conference staff and advisory board members. “Films Media Group and Infobase are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for community college librarians,” said Sarah Hicks, an FMG account executive who also serves as a board member for NMM. “We feel this conference provides a learning and networking experience, as well as purchasing advantages, that are often out of reach at community college libraries, where budgets for conference attendance may be limited.” Now in its 40th year, National Media Market & Conference meets annually to bring librarians together with distributors of film, streaming providers, and other media- and film-related services. “We’re a boutique conference, the only one of its kind, dedicated to improving knowledge, access and best practices for librarians who collect film,” said NMM Chair Jeff Tamblyn. “Participation and support by companies like Films Media Group is vital to carrying out our mission every year. We’re extremely grateful and proud to have them as a sponsor.” The 2018 National Media Market convenes October 7th through the 11th, in Indianapolis.
