At the American Association for State and Local History conference, Russell Gasero, archivist for the Reformed Church of America (RCA) gave each person in our presentation a DVD with four videos he had produced to promote his archives. The videos give a peek into the history of the church and show materials from the archives. Each is under 10 minutes in length. The archives web page contains one of the videos. During his presentation, Russell assured us that this had been simple to do and had given us an outline of his process (my notes). Through the use of pictures/video and words, Russell sparks our curiosity...and his he can do it, we all should be able to do it too!
I've just finished watching two of them...well done, Russ!
