Using Videos to Promote Libraries

Hey, librarians out there!  Want to learn how videos can promote your libraries?  We have a slideshow for that.  You know where to click.

The slideshow is also available from our Slideshare website:

This is one of the best promo trailers I've seen for academic libraries: "Who Will Help Me?" by the University of Alberta Libraries (2010).  I wish my Library could make videos this good.

Self-Checkout of DVDs and Old Barcodes

Need help using our new self-checkout terminals to checkout DVDs and old barcoded items?

Some items in my Library’s collections (e.g., DVDs, books, etc.) have not yet been equipped with new RFID (radio frequency identification) tags.  Other items, such as music CDs, only have barcodes.  Consequently, such items will not be automatically detected at the new self-checkout kiosks.  For these items, patrons will need to SCAN the OLD LIBRARY BARCODES, usually found (1) inside DVD cases; (2) on the inside or outside back covers of books; and (3) on the back covers of music CD cases.

The slideshow tutorial (below) explains how to open DVD cases and also how to scan library barcodes.
