Jacksonville: Virtual library tour

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was posted on the GeneaLib Mailing List. Ol' Myrt applauds such efforts on the part of librarians who wish to give a "heads up" to potential researchers. Please address all inquiries to David White, Librarian as indicated below.

Here at the Jacksonville Public Library, on Saturday, April 25th, we had an all day genealogy seminar. We had a wonderful speaker, Jana Sloan Boglin, who spoke on a variety of topics, and in costume at one point.

After her segment where she was in costume, we had the debut of the virtual tour of our genealogy department. This was produced in-house, with an ultra-zoom point-and-shoot camera, and nothing major in post production was done.

This type of tour would be a great way to get the word out about your collection and generate visits to your department.

We hope you enjoy.
