Creating and Using Video Content in the Library Workshop
A 2-part workshop,  each session runs 90 minutes on Thursdays, April 11 and 18, 2019, starting at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific on both days.

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.

After participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the importance of creating video content and how to justify using staff resources with library administrators
  • Have a basic understanding of video formats, equipment, and editing software
  • Understand the key factors to consider when planning for the creation of video content
  • Gain strategies for maximizing the impact of content on the web and social media

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart.
