Hopefully the first of many posts on video! We have created an Emotional Health article for our library website. The article includes quick facts on stress and tips on getting organized, all found in one of our library databases. And, we also included a link to my last videocast about my messy desk. Why? It fits the article and it lends the article a bit of humor, too.
So that’s a start, anyway. What else can one do with video on a library website?
- Use it as support info (that’s what we did with my video)
- Post downloadable versions of library events, seminars, author talks
- Short snippets of library events for use on future event descriptions
- Videocast of bibliographic instruction, downloadable when a student needs it
- Tours of the library
- Showing what a meeting room looks like
- Directions to the library! Visual can’t hurt here…
- Oral histories – libraries are big on audio version of oral histories… why not capture them on video, too?
- From our Children’s website RFQ – short video tours of area attractions, online storytellers, kids showing off their cool collectables
- Something completely original… one idea: a video version of “what’s new to read” at the library
Am I leaving anything out? Let me know!
