MIC (Moving Image Collections) is a management, preservation, and educational tool incorporating a consortial database, directories, a METS/MODS cataloging/mapping utility, and informational resources in a portal structure customizing information for various constituencies. MIC is co-sponsored by the Association of Moving Image Archivists and was designed in collaboration with the community as a preservation tool. Unique in its commitment to collaborative preservation of digital and analog resources, MIC answers the Library's congressional charge to lead a national planning effort for the long-term preservation of content. MIC's extensible architecture, built in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries, is broadly applicable to any digital collections initiative and has generated interest within the Library and beyond for its standards-based tools and rights management capabilities. The speakers will discuss future directions for MIC, and examine ways in which it addresses Library Services strategic plan objectives. MIC will also be discussed in relation to the report of the LC Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control.
