The InfoTubey Awards

The first InfoTubey awards were extremely well received, and the second ones tonight were no less popular.  The InfoTubey awards recognize excellence in library-related videos.  The videos were required to demonstrate marketing or innovation, demonstrate the library’s services, or convey the value of the library to the community.

ITI’s VP of Technology, Bill ("InfoDiddy") Spence, hosted the award ceremony.

The awards were judged by an elite committee of judges.  Here they are, with the InfoTubey awards in the foreground.
