About the Event
In this webcast, librarians and faculty will learn how to get the most out of their video resources; how video can be promoted in the library; which departments can benefit the most as well as a technical understanding of what cutting edge technology makes possible today. Existing users of streaming video will leave with new ideas and those who’ve yet to offer streaming resources will better be able to make a decision on whether it’s worth it.
