Abstract

Have you ever wished there was some way of reaching a mass amount of patrons with the least amount of effort? Have you wondered how to let distance education students know what is at your library? YouTube could be the answer. One article stated, “YouTube is the most popular internet television or video distribution site on the Internet and currently ranks number 16 on Alexa for most visited websites. YouTube offers anyone with an Internet connection the ability to upload video clips and share them with friends, family, and the world, all for free.” 1 YouTube is a social software application that could radically change how we look at library instruction and training... if we let it.
