Abstract : Multimedia technical libraries have great potential to change the way we train technical people and the way we develop software. However it will be a challenge to create such a technical library. In this report, I present different approaches for creating a library, based on both source and intended use. I present four strategies for information development, complete process outlines for five strategies of archival preparation, and user-and system-guided navigation strategies that can be used with the Informedia(TM) Digital Video Library System to access multimedia files. I also discuss the audio translations strategies that must be used with multimedia files.
