Primary Source Literacy Using YouTube and ESPN College GameDay Videos
Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (2011)
  • Erin Passehl, Western Oregon University

This presentation looks at a trend that I employed with archival instruction: the use and creation of video in one-shot instruction sessions. I used three specific videos to emphasize certain concepts in my primary source literacy efforts, three videos that have very different audiences, purposes, ways they were created, and distribution models. It will also look at why video can be a useful choice to connect students with primary sources through archival instruction.
