Technology Review: ALA YouTube Channel

The AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION maintains a YouTube channel containing news and information for librarians and library users.
Sponsored by ALA, the channel focuses on original programming aimed at library professionals and other ALA members. Programming includes professional development resources, publicity and advocacy tools, news, and information. Many of the videos are associated with popular initiatives such as Spark Advocacy and Libraries Transform.
Dozens of play lists are available including ALA Vlogs, Annual Conference video sets, and a financial learning series.
Librarians will find this channel useful in planning for administrative activities including marketing activities. However, there are also many useful resources for their own professional development.
