The first part of the essay is a guide to quality videos on video-hosting Web sites, the second to videos libraries use to promote their collections and services, the third to open source videos that libraries can use in their own instructional programs. Ariew discusses more than forty resources, all of which are listed in the cite list along with their URLs.
