Blatant Promotion: National Library Week videos

American Libraries Associate Editor Dan Kraus has made a series of National Library Week promotional videos. A new one will be posted at AL Focus every other day through National Library Week. I posted the first couple here on Ning; if I'm not able to post the rest here, you can see them on AL Focus.

I got a preview of them last week, and they're funny stuff. Hope you enjoy.

Edited to add: Just realized that the intro video was released separately in hopes that people will use it as an intro to their own National Library Week videos. Instructions for downloading it (or any other AL Focus video) are:

Go to the AL Focus Blip website:

alfocus.blip.tv

Find the video you want in the righthand menu and click on it, in this case the NLW Introduction (aka http://alfocus.blip.tv/#767790). Once it's playing you'll notice at the bottom of the player where it says "This episode's permalink." Click on that it takes you to:

http://blip.tv/file/761553

Use the "Select a format" pulldown menu to choose "Source - quicktime .mov". Once the video starts again you can right-click it or something similar to save it to your computer. So, a shortcut for libraries to download this video as a quicktime movie would to use the url of the .mov version, which is:
