Use of Instructional Videos by Dalhousie University Libraries
Dalhousie University Libraries in Halifax, Nova Scotia provide some great examples of instructional videos to help library users. They show a great diversity of approaches.
They can be played as Flash or .wmv movies, or downloaded to an iPod. It is also possible to read the scripts in PDF format.
Law libraries are also experimenting with online tutorials in a variety of formats:
- Courthouse Libraries BC offers legal research video tutorials
- University of Ottawa created a Principles of Legal Research wiki
- the Supreme Court of Canada library has created many online Flash tutorials (on the Intranet) on Canadian and American legal research topics
