Last week, we hosted a focus group at my place of work to ask staff lawyers what they thought of our library reference services.
One of the questions had to do with our ongoing program of "Tips and Tricks" training sessions.
Once a month, we organize quick 15-20 minute meetings where we show how to research a topic (public international law, Quebec Civil Code, criminal law, UN Treaties, etc.).
We demo databases or websites online and have a nice, clean, readable PDF handout for attendees. We also publish all our training PDFs on our library Intranet. We have a few dozen topical handouts so far.
But the lawyers at the focus group became very excited when one attendee suddently suggested that everything be available on demand in audiovisual format, a sort of "library Netflix".
And lo and behold, today I came across the YouTube channel created by the Education and Reference Department of the Boston College Law Library.
Is anyone aware of Canadian law libraries using YouTube for training purposes? Or other A/V tools?
