Scott was honored for his creation of the Chicago-Kent College of Law Library’s new video tour. He developed a video that balances the needs of the library user and the librarian. The video engages the user with a clean professional look and provides useful information. At the same time, the creative format of the video makes it easy for librarians to edit.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8O9Bd0zW9o]
Even though the video consists of a series of photographs and no actual moving images, Scott zoomed and panned over the pictures to give the look of movement, which keeps the viewer engaged. The use of color along with black and white photographs of people and places keeps the video visually interesting.
The music, obtained with a librarian-friendly Creative Commons license, provides a professional touch to the video. An honorable mention goes to Kim Koppen, Library Technology Specialist, for her narration of the video.
