Libraries 101 video available online

A group of talented undergraduate students from the University of Kentucky have created a video introduction to college/university libraries, intended for new college students and high school seniors:

 The message in the video created BY STUDENTS and FOR STUDENTS is simple:  Your college/university library has a lot to offer, and the librarians are happy to help you! This project grew from a collaboration of UK librarians and high school librarians from Fayette Co Public Schools. The intent is to look for ways librarians can work together to promote success as students transition from high school to college. The video is not University of Kentucky-specific so feel free to share it widely. Thank you!
