Important Reminders About Adding Multimedia

  • Search our assets first to see if we already have it
  • It is okay to add new videos, screencasts, etc., but do not create widgets without consulting Kelleen Maluski
  • If you want to create a new YouTube video, contact our Program Coordinator or another member of the Communications Committee for access to the UNM HSLIC YouTube Channel--do not use your personal YouTube channel or create any YouTube channels in the library's name
