In Their Own Words


This is a longer video from a university┬álibrary in England. It is filmed as a documentary in which students share their opinions about the library and how they use it. Some of the strengths of this video include shots of how busy the library actually is with students using it, there are no librarians telling you what the library is supposed to be, and best of all–it emphasizes the importance of promotion by word of mouth. I also like all the cute British accents. I did not like how slow the pace was, nor how long the video lasted. However, this has a good, grass roots feel to it.
