Flip-in' Out @ the Library
Thursday, June 17, 2010, 11:00 AM Pacific (Noon Mountain / 1pm Central / 2pm Eastern) 

TechSoup's product donation program includes easy-to-use Flip Video cameras that allow you to share your library and community stories. Find out how public libraries are using this technology as a tool for making connections, recording library events, and sharing knowledge.

We'll showcase several libraries so you can see how these videos are created, edited, and shared. The Tonganoxie Public Library in Kansas rocks the flip at their library. Royce Kitts will share how they use Flip cameras to produce videos of library events, recording staff training, and sharing advocacy techniques. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library uses Flip cameras within their system for programming at their branches. Kelly Czarnecki will let us know how they use these videos for everything from library advocacy and outreach to answering questions about current events.
