Welp. It was only a matter of time.
I’ve been working at Imagine Easy Solutions for over two years now. Fortunately for you, most of the time I’ve been hiding behind the written word, save the occasional announcement on YouTube or pseudo stock photo on our websites (yep, that’s me holding the laptop).
But no more. I present to you…
The Vlogging Librarian
Considering I spend a good chunk of my week scouring the Twittersphere for relevant news stories in Library Land and ed tech, it seemed like a natural segue for me to share these stories with you in a video blog.
So, without further ado, I present to you my first attempt at video blogging. This “In the News” vlog provides a quick summary on some of the top stories that have piqued the interest of my professional peers over the past few weeks.
Be gentle, please.
If you want to read more on these stories in detail, here’s where to find ’em:
- F.C.C. Says It Will Double Spending on High-Speed Internet in Schools and Libraries (The New York Times)
- Obama’s Focus on Early Education Is a Golden Opportunity for Libraries (School Library Journal)
- Outstanding Books for the College Bound
- Wikipedia vs. the Small Screen (The New York Times)’
So, just how awkward was I? What would you like to see in these video blogs? Let me know in the comments, and I promise the next one will be better. 😉 (As long as I don’t have Michele giggling at me through the window while I’m recording!)
Emily Gover is the information literacy librarian for EasyBib and ResearchReady. She is a little bit too excited about hearing the editor of Merriam-Webster discuss etymology at NYPL tonight. You can find her on Twitter, @Emily_EasyBib, or posting news you can use at the EasyBib Librarians Facebook page.
