Tapping into media at Denver Public Library

This article features experiences of public librarians At Denver PL taking their online presence to the next level with audio and video. I have to blog about this because of all the public libraries I have ever seen, this was the most memorable.It's not just the fabulous building and the go-ahead services : it's the heavenly (to me) special collection of Western Americana.
Back to Web 2.0 : they are adding cutting edge and popular video and audio to their physical collections. THe article draws attention to the fact that on the web the lines of media are merging. Journals, newspapers are using audio and video on their web sites. Boulder PL has podcasts created by teenagers. Denver plan a YouTube channel for all their video content.
