I found some fabulous library videos on youtube! Funny, clever and definitely not the stuffy library image. http://tinyurl.com/ngaesq is a circulation video based on The Wizard of Oz, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pS28qydjfsg&NR=1 is a overview of library services from Otis Library, and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-oBHCsFbkk promotes Columbus Public Library using a popup book. I can't even imagine being able to produce something like these. We have bought a flip video camera for the library, but haven't used it yet.
i think the use of videos such as these not only highlights library services, but makes the library seem like a much more inviting place, the staff friendly and approachable, even FUN! I would love to produce something like this for our library, and will definitely look into it at some point!
Videos could also be used for instruction, like how to search specific databases or using the computer, for author interviews, to show program highlights, etc.
