David Stern and I have been experimenting with the computer screen video-capture program Camtasia to create brief online library tutorials (which include audio layers please overlook David's voice on these demonstrations).
The four links below show sample tutorials for YaleLinks, Multiple Database Searching (MetaLib), demonstrating the distinction between finding journal articles in databases and books in Orbis, and describing a chemistry "librarian emulator".
Please also forgive our rough first attempts--it's still a learning process!

Nevertheless, these tutorials are easy to produce and upload to the Library Web site, and we can imagine dozens of instructional situations that could be enhanced by the addition of these short videos, including Ask!Live and email reference, at-a-distance bibliographical instruction, and point-of-need demonstrations of online library tools and procedures.
A task force will establish "best practices" for using Camtasia to create such online library tutorials in a programmatic fashion (e.g. menu page of tutorials, return/finish page, directory and filename protocols, etc).  In the meantime, please contact me for production details and with ideas for additional modules (I'll be away until May 15, so contact David in the meantime).
