Looking for an opportunity to present at ALA?
The RUSA MARS Hot Topics in Electronic Reference Discussion Group seeks panelists for its upcoming program at ALA Annual 2009:
“Casting a Wide Net: Using Screencasts to Reach and Teach Library Users”
Is your library using screencasts or video tutorials for user instruction? Maybe you use Jing for virtual reference, or you’ve created a set of short tutorials that demonstrate how to use your databases. We’d love to hear your thoughts on how this technology is (or isn’t) working at your library. The RUSA MARS Hot Topics in Electronic Reference Discussion Group is planning a panel discussion for ALA Annual about screencasting - our panelists will briefly share how they are using screencasts or video tutorials at their libraries, then discuss successes, challenges, best practices, and ideas for the future. Finally, we will take questions from the audience.
If you are interested in serving as a panelist, contact Sarah Lehmann, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Michelle Jacobs, email@example.com by June 1.
