Abstract

Library created instructional videos can enhance library instruction in face to face classes, online classes, and at service points. Some libraries do not have a single person dedicated to video creation, and often create videos on an ad hoc basis. This presentation will detail the efforts of a large university library to create a cohesive management and development plan for library instructional videos, as part of a larger information literacy program.

Presenters will discuss the creation of a video team within the library, the process for developing a robust set of video guidelines, and the challenges faced to accomplish these goals. The presenters will also provide information and tips on video creation, including specific platforms and video hosting options. Finally, the presenters will detail how library videos are used as part of the library’s information literacy efforts and marketed throughout the library and campus. Attendees will be able to apply the process of creating a video plan at their institution, and will be better prepared to make decisions on video development tools.
