Liaison Discussion Section: Video Tutorials for Library Instruction

Topic: Video Tutorials for Library Instruction, presented by Larraby Fellows of CCV
Who’s Invited: All liaisons and anyone else who is interested
When: Friday, January 13, from 2:30-4 pm
Where: Davis Family Library 105

Larraby Fellows, Public Services Librarian at the Community College of Vermont, will tell us how she creates video tutorials for library instruction. Larraby’s presentation will help us kick off our second round of information literacy tutorial planning and creation. Larraby has a nice collection of tutorials on the CCV site. A few of my personal favorites: Go Local? VT Issues & Events as Paper Topics, How Do I Get Help? and Search Words.

Topics will include:

  • Setting goals based on the purpose of the tutorial (eg, on-the-fly instruction, explanation of research concepts, advertisement)
  • Creating consistency and “branding” across tutorials: Setting protocols, where to find copyright-free image collections, how to decide which images to use
  • Moving from step-by-step tutorials toward concept tutorials
  • Time requirements, workflow recommendations, keeping material up-to-date
  • Results/statistics
  • Tech tips: Larraby will tell us why she uses Adobe Captivate (we don’t have Captivate here at Midd)

“Liaison Discussion Section” meetings address research and/or technology topics of interest to liaisons. They can be conversations, or presentations, or both. They take place most often on the 3rd week of the month, but in order to allow people who work different hours to attend, they’re sometimes scheduled for different days/times.
