BACKGROUND

I always wanted to see beautiful libraries of the world like the Library of
Congress of Washington D.C., the British Library of London, and the
Bodleian Library of Oxford. I also wanted to view Library and Information
Science tutorial videos by top-ranked library and i-schools. There are some
topics which cannot be demonstrated effectively through text (as in article
form), where video format is preferred. For example, if the subject is like Use
of Robots In Libraries, then it would be more interesting to see a video
showing robots in action in libraries. Likewise, a biography of a library
and information science luminary like Dr. S. R. Ranganathan, Dr. Carla
Hayden, Lois Mai Chan, or Charles Ammi Cutter should better be viewed in a
video. So an idea came to my mind to create a YouTube Channel on Library
and Information Science with top quality videos on the pattern of Khan
Academy <http://khan%20academy/>.

FEATURED VIDEO
