#3 Blowing up the library instruction model

Librarians at universities are working hard to embed information literacy concepts throughout the entire curriculum, which means that our traditional instructional methods must also change. I argue that short videos offer a different, and more sustainable way of delivering information literacy instruction, and can be used individually, as a series, and can be marketed toward educators who want to incorporate any range of topics into their courses. The short video format allows educators to link to  content within  online course management systems, watch in class, or assign as work outside of the classroom, reaching students at many different times and places without having to be delivering the instruction in person. This offers a more sustainable approach to library instruction.
