The First InfoTubey Award Ceremony

A new innovation at CIL–the InfoTubey Awards!  They are given to libraries which used YouTube to market their library or its services or enhance the standing of the library in the community.  Tonight’s award ceremony was a gala affair, with lots of laughs and a look at the winning videos.

The distinguished panel of judges included (L-R) Aaron Schmidt (North Plains Public Library), Kathy Dempsey (Information Today), Darlene Fichter (University of Saskatchewan), Bill Spence (ITI, Chair of the Judging Panel), Rebecca Jones (Dysart & Jones Associates), and Marshall Breeding (Vanderbilt University).  Alson on the panel but unable to attend were D. Scott Brandt (Purdue University), and Stephen Abram (Sirsi-Dynix).

Here is the award given to each recipient.
