CDI to Present Local History Resources on TV This Thursday

Published: February 23, 2010 by Robin M. Katz

Mark your calendars!

Live at 5:25 - Thursday, February 25, 2010 - Channel 17

The CDI will share some of its excellent local history resources with the audience of Preservation Burlington's "Live at 5:25." Outreach Librarian Robin Katz will be joined by two UVM Libraries staff members who have helped create CDI collections.

Mary Van Buren-Swasey of the Cataloging department uses her local history expertise to create rich museum-level descriptive records for the ongoing additions to the McAllister photograph collection. Dan DeSanto, a staff member in Reference and Instruction and a recent graduate of the University of Alabama's School of Library and Information Science, is currently working on our forthcoming collection of Long Trail photographs.

Robin, Mary and Dan will highlight collection materials, share anecdotes about the research involved in digital collection production, and invite viewers to further explore the CDI.

Update: Watch the Video Online


See how the CDI was mentioned on a previous "Live at 5:25" show entitled "Researching Your Old House" and featuring historian and museum consultant Erica Donnis.

Watch for the CDI on TV

Watch for our pilot PSA on RETN. It highlights the types of materials in our current collections, shares our URL with the Vermont public, and emphasizes one of the best aspects of the CDI: "Anyone can use it, from anywere, for free!"

RETN Channel 16 is a local educational cable access station serving Vermont's Champlain Valley. If you're outside of the viewing area, you can still catch us on RETN's blip.tv channel.

Many thanks to RETN's Doug Dunbebin for his support and to the UVM Libraries' Jake Barickman for lending his voice.
