Go to Manchester Public Library’s teen site, called Teen Matrix. From there, click the get information about the teen services podcast here link.
That page offers two types of podcasts: the first is an audio-based podcast (here’s the podcast feed) – it features a librarian giving book reviews.
But the second one (here’s the videoblog feed) – it’s actually a true videoblog. It features a librarian and local teens talking about their favorite books!
I’m not sure if the library/librarian plans to continue – it looks like the videos were all created in November 2005. But still… it shows a definite proof-of-concept, if nothing else. And it shows a great implementation of videoblogging for libraries, too – that of a book review. Think about it – many libraries already have patrons attending book talks. Why not simply video the book talks, and place them online after-the-fact?
That way you get the best of both worlds – the live presentation and interactions at the event, but also the videoblog version (with comments enabled!!!!) via the normal blog/rss route. That opens the book talk up to a potentially larger audience, and provides even more interactions.
So get out there and do some videoblogging! And send me more examples if any exist…
