They will be listed on each state’s page in the Festival Near You section. We will also have a YouTube playlist. I’m not entirely sure yet if they will automatically appear in the video on demand section, but I think it’s likely (once the site launches that page will automatically pull videos tagged as NBF 2021). They will not appear in the local events, since they are video on demand programming.
Yes, I meant the Great Reads panel videos that the Centers for the Book have been creating.
So where specifically are they going when they do get posted?
Are they going in the “Local Events” listing here even though they are pre-recorded and don’t have dates? If yes, will they just be at the top?
Are they going on our specific state pages in the Festival Near You section? On this WA page as an example?
Are they going in the general “Video On-Demand” section, too?
Will there be a specific playlist of the panel videos on the Library of Congress YouTube channel?
Do you mean the Great Reads panel videos? (There’s a lot of “NBF videos.)
If you mean the great reads videos, that is entirely dependent on when we receive them from you. If we receive them on Guy’s stated deadline of 9/13, please be aware that the time for captioning and our backend ingest process to add to the Library website will take enough time that they will not go up by 9/17. Our multimedia and web teams are aware of these videos though, and will work very hard to get them up during the Festival (prior to 9/26).
If you send the completed videos asap with the completed metadata as requested, we may be able to add them by 9/17.
Hi—we don’t know the date for posting, but the videos will be accessible from the map on the Festival Near You page. Deziree is out today, but may have more specifics on this.
Hi Guy and Deziree,
I just had a quick question. Do we know the date when all of the NBF author panel videos will be up and live?
Also, which specific part of the NBF website will hold these videos? The video on-demand section as well as the Festival Near You sections or…?
