Video Resources


Video is an incredibly popular format these days.  It provides a great way to promote library services and programs to a wider audience. Students make creative use of video as a learning/presentation tool in schools. Screencasts can help library staff and customers learn how to use your library services. Videos produced by others help explain new web services and software tools. Conference presentations, powerpoint presentations and library events can also be shared via video.
