Library Widget screencast

The libraries@cambridge team have dipped a toe in the glamorous world of film making, the result being the Cambridge Libraries Widget Screencast, showing here:

Starring Emma Coonan, and written and directed by Rachel Marsh, it's a sweeping tale of romance and passion. Actually it's a short guide to using the Cambridge Libraries Widget, but you have to start somewhere.

We're keen to pursue the use of film and screencasts, so we're pleased to have made our first foray. It was a pretty steep learning curve, but thanks to Lihua Zhu, our friends at CARET, and Anton at the Streaming Media Service we think we managed to achieve a good result. Hopefully the sequels will be a lot easier!
