English abstract

Combining the informative nature of library tutorials with the interactivity of online video, video tutorials and screencasts have become recognized as an effective way to provide instruction in an engaging manner. The visual nature of video makes the medium highly appropriate at institutions serving visual arts researchers, who regularly seek images for edification. This article examines the availability and quality of video tutorials among 290 academic libraries serving arts students, finding that 48 percent of institutions include instructional videos on their Web sites. Increased tutorial development on diverse topics using varied recording methods is recommended based on the results.
