Library Goes Sci Fi to Promote Its Services

Long Beach City College is a community college in California. Its librarians wanted to show students what they have to offer in a fun, novel way. So they created the most extraordinary library promotional videos I've ever seen.

I recently attended a professional conference where the librarians, led by their larger-than-life library director, Ramchandran Sethuraman, delivered a presentation about their video project. The project consists of 4 modular videos covering major library services, including research assistance, database access, citation help, and a survey of resources in a multitude of languages.

The college is located close to Hollywood, which was a huge help. They were able to hire a professional video production company, which created these videos for a mere $8,500. The videos have special visual and sound effects, dramatic music, and scripts that are both funny and precise.
