Kathryn A. Martin Library Student Video Contest

2008-09 was the second annual Kathryn A. Martin Library Student Video Contest, where students submitted videos that were set in the Library or about the Library. Students competed for prizes by demonstrating their artistry as cinematic auteurs, and now we get to show off their work and show off our fine institution.
