Teaching the catalog with online videos

Staff at our library and at the OWLS system have released three videos this week, using screencasting to highlight new and useful features of the catalog. With a lot of people taking summer vacations, its great that we can "freeze" our holds, so we don't miss stuff we've been waiting for.

Exciting new catalog features allow patrons to "rate" titles and post reviews, a la Amazon. I like it that the catalog is becoming more interactive.

Here are the screencasts. Check 'em out!
