TUSC Videos Showcase Digital Collections
Tulane University Libraries is producing an ongoing video series, Collection Connection, on the library’s YouTube channel. Each episode focuses on a different TUSC collection available online within the Tulane University Digital Library, such as the Carnival Collection, the Tulane University Archives Historical Collection, and the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps Collection.Begun at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic when travel halted, the Tulane University campus closed, and staff began working from home, the series promotes collections that patrons can easily access online. It also allowed library staff then working from home to produce creative library outreach projects for patron use using minimal resources.
Nine episodes are currently available, and they have generated over 4,100 views and more than 82 hours of watch time (notable since no video is longer than three minutes) on YouTube, more than doubling over the last six months. Please check back often for new additions to the series.
