Thanks, Gale. And I want more of these.
Here’s why this matters.
It matters because the market for this little video is not librarians.
The market is kids. The story is why kids need reliable information and how easy it is to get it.
Load that password in one time and shazammm, you are ready to go!
Sure, I am going to show this professionally-made video to my students to get even more interest brewing. Many of my kids (and our teachers) are already sold.
I can use this at assemblies and PTA meetings and faculty meetings.
And I hope Gale uses this outside of the library market to explain how valuable it is going to be to truly hold a library in your pocket.
And I hope our other vendor friends get on board.
And I hope that efforts like these will help sell the value of easy-to-access databases before even more of us lose funding to support them.
