This paper will describe an on-going project at Bilkent University Library, Turkey, to create a series of instructional online videos aimed specifically at the so-called Net Generation (Generation Z) library users. These videos, which will be produced by doctoral students from the university’s Communication and Design department in collaboration with the Library and will be uploaded to the world wide web. The videos seek to present basic reference and information problems in the form of short, informal dramatic exchanges between a student and a librarian, rather than using the formal pedagogical format of most traditional online tutorials.
