Librarians on YouTube

Tonight I went to the InfoTubey Awards. Information Today hosted the awards for libraries that created videos on YouTube to promote their services. They chose 5 winners from approximately 60 entries.

Here are the winners:

New Jersey State Library:

Seneca Library - Canada:

McCracken Library - Kentucky: and

Williams College Library:

Arlington Heights Memorial Library:

And since the library from Canada could not afford to send someone to Virginia, here is the Acceptance Speech:

PALINET sponsored the snacks and coffee, which was a fantastic idea by the marketing team.

And since my co-worker Catherine likes the book cart drill teams, I thought I'd feature this one from Pitt:

And one that I think it pretty clever:

What are some of your favorite library videos?

Thanks Nancy! I have updated the link!

Here are the three reasons I love the library...

1.) Free access to information... books, CDs, DVDs, internet, etc.
2.) Great speakers!
3.) Friendly and encouraging library staff.
