This month's post is a podcast with Arizona State University Librarian Emeritus deg farrelly, who's been collecting, curating, and serving up media in libraries for 40 years. 

Recently retired, deg was a major contributor to several landmark research projects and a fierce proponent of video as a tool of scholarship. Some of his most important work has concerned co-creating the Section 108 database for performing due diligence in preserving VHS titles when they're no longer available for sale. 

Now, he's a major supporter of NMM's new project, the Academic Libraries Video Trust, having donated $10,000 as a seed grant. Find out why he feels it's so important.
