Video Production for School Library Media Specialists: Communication and Production Techniques. Professional Growth Series.
McConnell, Terry; Sprouse, Harry W.
This book aims to help show school librarians how camcorders and other video production equipment can help them communicate more effectively with students, teachers, parents, and administrators. The book sees video production as an integral part of a library media center program because learning how to produce videos is an excellent way to learn how to communicate.
