AVMS Audiovisual and Multimedia Section

The Audiovisual and Multimedia Section (AVMS) is the international forum for persons working with analog, digitized and born digital materials in every kind of library and information service.

AVMS concerns itself extensively with all issues relating to sound, still and moving images and multimedia documents, including collection development, cataloguing, access and conservation, as well as services based upon them, such as children's libraries, language centres, and multimedia digital libraries delivered via the Internet.

AVMS promotes the development of specialist expertise.
Special expertises are required about sources and methods of acquisitions, technical issues for historical and for new carriers and equipments, legal issues affecting collecting, transferring and delivering documents, specifics rules and formats of cataloguing.
The Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) policy on sharing of heritage: "All countries have the same right and need to preserve and have access to their national memory. Films, programs and recordings released in multiple countries sometimes do not survive in their country of origin".
The most important work in IFLA happens in the various groups that make up the organization. They are all filled with enthusiastic people who gather materials and work to further the profession.
