This was sent to me over Twitter and I loved it. It’s a promo for Library Ireland Week which starts March 7th by Areaman Productions.
Australian librarians and their copyright dance – puttin’ on the writs
Video of staff from the National Library of Australia performing at their 2010 Christmas party. Fun! [thanks iain!]
Heading to Portland for PLA?
Library students Turner Masland, Rebecca Chernay, Amy Frazier and Serenity Ibsen have made a delightful video The Visiting Librarian’s Guide to Portland. Donut and coffee suggestions and a lively soundtrack. And remember: Couch Street is pronounced “cooch.” Aaron Schmidt has also written a Walking Guide to Portland that is useful and the PLA Blog has a list of Portland libraries in case you’re like me and like to visit local libraries while you’re out and about.
and now for a change of pace, library 101
Please enjoy the Library 101 video and look for all your favorite librarians. Would love to see a credit list someplace.
using YouTube to promote fun library activities
So I gave a talk at NJLA, one of my favorite talks, called Advanced YouTubery. Brett Bonfield saw it and liked it and took some of the ideas to heart with this fun video promoting the Collingswood Library’s 5k race to raise money for a teen area in the library. Neat.
