dc.description.abstractAfter observing low usage statistics for a handful of library services, Albert S. Cook Library’s Marketing Committee decided to create videos to promote underutilized resources. In past videos, the library relied on student actors, but it became increasingly difficult to find students willing to participate. As a result, the library purchased a puppet and then created videos featuring him. This chapter details how committee members created the puppet’s persona and scripted, filmed, edited, promoted and assessed the effectiveness of these videos. The chapter concludes with considerations for other libraries wishing to develop their own character-centric promotional campaigns.en_US
