Instructional library videos are an essential component of distance librarianship and serve as invaluable resources for students unable to partake in synchronous library training. Organizing and updating these videos can be daunting, especially when facing obstacles such as loss of original video files, decentralized access points, and viewing incompatibilities among devices.
