One of the more exciting initiatives recently is the TEDxLibrariansTO event. Kudos to the team that conceived of this and did a sensational job promoting it. Lots of good buzz and enthusiastic interest. Looking forward to attending and commenting on the day.
As part of the build up to the event the organizers challenged people to submit a video reflecting on theme: Librarians as Thought Leaders. Having never actually created a video before didn’t seem to phase me; learn by doing.
