The Connecting Through Lights, Cameras & Action session started with Allen County (Fort Wayne, Indiana) public library’s Sean Robinson showing a video he made, called Vade Mecum, about a woman becoming engrossed in a book by Amy Tan. It has a happy ending.
Next up is Michael Porter and David Lee King showing their Library 101 video. They’ve got a Facebook page for Library 101 that has 1800 fans from 17 different countries. Over 6000 images were submitted. They want this to be an example of what librarians can do with little effort and minor money. Pretty amazing rock video. Check out libraryman.com/library101 and davidleeking.com. Lyrics are on the libraryman site.
List of resources with 101 links. 101 resources and things to know(RTK). Asking for comments. Essays on library 101 from 23 people, asking people to add essays to the site. Community building exercise. The hashtag is #library101. Michael asks audience to tweet with that hashtag hoping to make it a trending topic. Now the audience is taking turns for their second of fame in front of the green screen as they “want u 2 know”. You’ll probably see some of this in the next video, Library 201.
