Now that I have uploaded this assignment, I thought I’d share it with you all. I made this short film as an introduction to GIL Find, our Online Public Access Catalog or OPAC. I am constantly surprised at the number of patrons even at the undergraduate level who aren’t sure how to find a book or resource in the library catalog and I think the problem might be simply that no one has ever shown them how. I may end up having to reshoot parts of the film for clarity but I was using free software to screen capture much of the footage (Jing and Snagit) and then another free download to covert the footage into a format that I could import into Sony Vegas. I think with better hardware and software, I can create a higher quality product.
