Q. Using several sources, both print and online, I’ve tracked down the type of art media used in many of the Caldecott Medal-winning books, but I haven’t been able to find some of the older ones, so my list is not complete. Can ALA help with this? I just want the art media for the Caldecott winners, not the honor books, if that helps.
Q. My library board would like to know if ALA has a policy in relation to taking pictures of children or adults in the library and then using them for promotional purposes, including posting them to the online photo sharing web site, Flickr. We love to share our events, but we’re concerned about copyright.
Q. I saw this week’s article at the Huffington Post website about movie librarians, Librarians Save The Day! 11 Great Movies In Which They Star. I was very surprised to see a film there starring one of my favorite actresses, Bette Davis, that I never heard of! By any chance, can ALA tell me anything about Storm Center (1956)? I’m hoping to add it to my list of requested films from that online DVD rental service.
