library instruction, video production


Published conference proceedings for 2020 Charleston Conference.

As librarians, we are often asked to fill roles outside of our areas of expertise, and that is particularly true now when we are trying to find innovative ways to engage with our users. While my institution has created library videos in the past, there is certainly an increased demand now to create and also manage our video collection. This paper will provide practical advice and tips for librarians who find themselves serving as videographers, producers, or video administrators. We will explore the different types of instructional video options as well as the benefits and challenges of each type. Then we will discuss pedagogical and technical strategies for planning and then producing videos. Lastly, we will look at best practices for sharing, saving, and archiving videos.
