Unfortunately YouTube is blocked in my school district. Actually, I understand that some of the content can be questionable. As part of this exercise I clicked on the Librarian’s Manifesto and was shocked that nude pictures were included. I had planned to embed that video here but once I saw the nude photo decided to look for something more appropriate for an elementary librarian. And, I found MrMarshall1’s video that was just placed on YouTube in November. It is called “How to locate a book on the library shelves.”
I like YouTube and frequently look for videos on the site. Now that Google is no longer accepting videos YouTube hits on Google searches will become more prevalent. I like the idea that you can embed the videos from the site right onto a blog, wiki, or website. Library catalogs would benefit from having videos embedded into them, then when a student or patron was looking for Martin Luther King speeches, they could click and actually see the video of the speech.
