I’m teaching a workshop all about making and using videos in libraries. Here’s a blurb about it (totally swiped from ALA’s press release):
ALA Publishing eLearning Solutions announces an exciting new workshop, Creating and Using Video Content in the Library with David Lee King. This workshop will consist of two 90-minute sessions and take place at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific on Thursdays, April 11 and 18, 2019.
Creating video content is easier today than it’s ever been. The equipment is everywhere—you can make a high-quality video with the average smartphone, edit it with simple-to-use software, and post it to a website or social network seamlessly. The proliferation of video content on the web has wonderful implications for library services. If you aren’t using video on your library’s website or social media channels, it’s time to get started.
In this new two-part workshop, library technology and digital librarianship expert David Lee King shows you how to start incorporating video. David explains how you can use video for outreach through a variety of case studies, shares tips on what types of content works best, and describes what to consider when planning for and implementing a video presence at your library.
Interested in making and sharing videos about your library? If so, hope to see you at the workshop!
