You Tube - a new tool for Information Literacy

After a long holiday break in Bavaria I am back! Takes a few days to read all those hundreds of e-mails, blog posts and catch up! Ugh!

Just came across a really useful and inspiring presentation from Dana Dukic in Hong Kong about the use of YouTube. After a background summary of YOuTube it highlights how YouTube is being used in some Libraries. In particular it cites University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign; Z Smith Reynolds Library, Wake Forest University;Cornell University ; UCLA ; Bob Baker's Info Literacy Channel, Pima Community College, Tucson ; Paul Robeson Library Channel at Rutgers University ; University of South Florida ; Georgia Tech. "YouTube - a goldmine for library instruction videos". Really glad to see someone else saying that! When and if I get time, one day I will write an article along these lines.
