The internet’s favorite repository for cat videos has undergone an unexpected transformation in the last 10 years. Okay, it’s still a repository for cat videos, but more than that, it’s a place of curiosity and community. With this introductory session, we will be hosting a series of panels and workshops to explore how libraries can get started on YouTube. You’ll learn about the concept of Curiosity Correspondents, gaining internal support for a YouTube project, and how to make the most of your channel (including community outreach, education, and federal advocacy).
The panel will feature Colleen Theisen of University of Iowa, Susie Kirk of Henderson State University, and Richert Schnorr of New York Public Library. Between them, they represent public libraries, special collections, the BookTube communities. The panel will be moderated by Sahitya Raja of Uplift, an organization dedicated to creating safe community spaces online.
