					Flickr & Youtube

      YOU can do it!
                 Flickr
 Why
 How
 Tagging
 Descriptions
 Another Site
 Difficulties
                  Why?
 OPAC’s are great-for their intended
  purpose (i.e. searching for items)
 Web 2.0 tools allow libraries to get a
  presence on the web, for free, that people
  (hopefully) will want to see
 Flickr allows libraries to advertise
  themselves and re-brand libraries as
  something other than a warehouse for
  books
                       How?
   Create a Yahoo Account
   Create your Flickr account
   www.flickr.com
   Upload pictures-adding tags that apply to all
   Upload
   Describe
   Geographic Location (Google Maps-mashup)
   Done
                 Tagging
 Comparable to keyword searching, but
  driven by users not catalogers
 Key is to use good tags that will bring
  casual surfers to your pictures (and
  hopefully to your library)
                 Difficulties
 Scottsdale cut the link between the Library’s
  web site and Flickr (Youtube as well)
 Logic was that user might play around with
  Flickr and Youtube and see something bad
 Both sites do pull bad stuff when they catch or
  are told
 Bad stuff exists on the web, denying it or
  denying access to the web achieves nothing
                Another Site
 Flickr is best known, not necessarily best
 Picassa

  2Fpicasaweb.google.com%252Fhome%253Ftab%253Dw
  q&service=lh2&passive=true
 Owned by Google
 Picture editing capabilities
 Server based as well as download
 If put pictures on Google Maps-need put photos on
  Picassa

                 YouTube
 Why
 How
 Other sites
 Difficulties
                   Why?
 The web is driven by new and exciting.
  “You” literally have milliseconds to get a
  person’s attention.
 An OPAC won’t cut it, but Youtube can
 Means of saving library server space and
  still get info out to world
 Free! Really is easy to use
 http://youtube.com/index
                       How?
   A tad more complicated that Flickr (although if
    willing to sacrifice quality, can buy/use digital
    video cameras strictly designed to create
    Youtube videos)
   http://www.theflip.com/
   Create film (I have a Sony video camera)
   Edit film (After our pod/video podcasting class, I
    got an Apple to edit)
   Turn raw footage into Quicktime video-Youtube
    quality
   Upload-adding tags, descriptions
                 Editing
 Most video cameras have editing capability
 Most computers have editing capability
  built in (muvee) or buy cheap editing
  software from “Fry’s Electronics”
 I bought an Apple laptop. Editing was
  pretty easy and converting to Quicktime
  and uploading was very easy
             Other Sites
 Like MySPace knock-offs, there are a
  plethora of YouTube “killers”
 Google video (yes, even though they own
  Youtube)
 Yahoo video
 Current (Al Gore’s)
               Difficulties
 If have people-need releases
 Don’t use stolen copyrighted info-potential
  trouble is patrons use your equipment for
  video
 Forced to have video reviewed before
  uploading (City of Scottsdale Policy)
 Fear-user might explore site and see bad
  things and blame library
