Sakes alive, we’ve all heard tell of a heap of videos online at rip-roaring libraries and YouTube. Libraries are hankering for ‘em -- video-pioneers are flourishin’ -- to say a heap more about the homestead and show a smiling buckaroo. Lickety-split clips can reveal services the library provides for its pilgrims. Criminy, this process is not high falutin. With a little by-the-by and training, greenhorns can hit pay dirt: annex or create video then reckon up knowledge of library resources and the research process. Cowboy-up and use your videos for assessment along with providing a magic lantern show.
