Librarians, you cannot afford to have an adversarial relationship with their principals. You cannot even afford principals who are "agents of benevolent neglect." You need an administrator who actively supports you and your program.

Secrets Of YouTube You Should Know ~ MakeUseOf

Secrets Of YouTube You Should Know ~ MakeUseOf | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

by Simon Slangen

 

"YouTube is a favourite past-time for many of us; the chance to lead your own TV station. From you, for you. And yet, for all the time we spend on this web site, we know very little about it. It’s not surprising, seeing the size of this site, that there are a lot of back doors. A lot of ways to do things you wouldn’t expect.

 

"If you like YouTube, as many of us do, it’ll pay off to look into these secrets. With this knowledge, it’s easier to get what you want, when you want it; to enjoy YouTube in its full glory."
