The University Libraries are pleased to announce the winners of the University Libraries Video Competition.  The purpose of the video competition was to promote library resources and services while encouraging students to create collaborative teams and show the library from the student perspective. Teams were given a set of requirements including time limits, required locations and a product free of copyright material.  

Nine teams entered the competition in February. In early April, a panel of judges selected four videos as finalists. The four finalist’s videos were uploaded to the library website for public vote. Voting started Sunday, April 11 and ran through Friday, April 16. During that week, more than 1800 votes were cast to determine final rankings.  

All participants who completed a video were given t-shirt designed specially for the competition.  Prizes were awarded for first through fourth place. The prizes included camcorders, tripods, iPod Nanos and iPod Shuffles.
