Ithaca, NY Libraries often house hidden treasures and institutions now use social networks to bring those treasures to light. A typical library exhibit displayed in a hallway may stimulate casual observers as they walk from the reading room to the water fountain. A library exhibit featured on YouTube can effectively tell the story of scholarly assets to extend their cultural value beyond library communities. Rice University’s Fondren Library has highlighted some of their collections in short You Tube videos that include:
