lecture / presentation description
With the help of the 2015 ILA/ACRL PR/Marketing Award, the Clarke University Library set out to create a series of entertaining and educational videos featuring a dog, Stanley the Pug. How did we go from this spark of an idea to the completed videos? It took working across campus with a number of parties including the Communications Department, Career Services, the Drama Department, and most importantly our library intern who wrote the storyline, dialogue and directed and filmed the videos.Creating this video series has helped the library build a fun and playful atmosphere which was one of the goals of the project. While we ran into bumps along the road, our success was the cross campus collaboration that created a valuable learning experience for students and library staff alike.Anyone thinking about taking on a project like this will surely benefit from hearing about the process, timeline, and lessons learned. Even if you aren't thinking about undertaking a similar project, you still might enjoy hearing about our adventures of filming a celebrity dog in the library stacks.
