Abstract

Part Four includes annotated entries for associations and organizations, most of which are headquartered in the United States and Canada, whose interests are in some manner significant to the fields of learning, design, and technology or library and information science. For the most part, these organizations consist of professionals in the field or agencies that offer services to the educational media community. In an effort to only list active organizations, I deleted all organizations that have not updated their information since 2007. Readers are encouraged to contact the editors with names of unlisted media-related organizations for investigation and possible inclusion in the 2020 edition.

Information for this section was obtained through e-mails, directing each organization to an individual web form through which the updated information could be submitted electronically into a database created by Michael Orey. Although the section editor made every effort to contact and follow up with organization representatives, responding to the annual request for an update was the responsibility of the organization representatives. The editing team would like to thank those respondents who helped assure the currency and accuracy of this section by responding to the request for an update. Figures quoted as dues refer to annual amounts unless stated otherwise. Where dues, membership, and meeting information are not applicable, such information is omitted.
