Libraries in Videos

Librarians go GaGa videoLast week, Huffington Post featured a library-related video round-up entitled Librarians Go Gaga: 9 Of The Funniest Library Videos Ever.

Some of them I'd never seen before, but all of them were enjoyable to watch. However, the Library Girl song wasn't there, and they also left out David Lee King and Michael Porter's Library 101 project. I guess that one isn't meant to be funny ha-ha, but I was making a funny face in it.

However, my favorite video of this type, which is more Web 2.0 than library, is Are You Blogging This?, which David made in 2006:

I still occasionally find that song going through my head, even when I haven't watched it in awhile. Since libraries have been declared the Next Big Thing (via), we'll probably see ourselves in much more media - after all, we are pretty hip.

    It’s not library specific, but it’s set in a library and absolutely hilarious.
