If you ever wished there were two of you in the library, one to take care of the routine questions so the other one could get on with the more challenging work, then I recommend you consider making instructional videos. In my experience they can answer the common questions that take up so much time, and they can also equip your students to bring more advanced questions to a one-on-one consultation. This chapter offers advice on how you too can create successful videos.
