Using Screencasting to Promote Database Trials and Library Resources
Emanuel, Michelle
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v25 n4 p277-282 2013
At the University of Mississippi, screencasting was used to promote a database trial to the ARTStor Digital Library. Using Jing, a free product used for recording and posting screencasts, and a Snowball USB microphone, 11 videos averaging 3 minutes in length were posted to an online topic guide. Screencasting was used as a quick, creative, and cost-effective marketing strategy to appeal to multiple stakeholders. The short videos, focused in content and message, were an effective tool to push patrons to the database trial.
