"Fall in Love with the Library": Stay Tuned for the Next Season

 



Libraries have been around civilization for thousands of years, and for a university they represent her soul and character. Tsinghua Library has always been the spiritual home for Tsinghua people for a century. Now for the 90s generation, how did they show their love for the library? They chose the trendiest way—micro film.
In the summer of 2011, Tsinghua University Library established a student research training program (SRT), allowing students to personally work out their own ways to introduce the library. Thus, students wrote, directed, and acted a series of micro films "Fall in Love with the Library" by themselves in 5 episodes depicting a love story that happened here—where Yifu and Kaifeng met, got to know each other, and fell in love. In the film, all kinds of library services were subtly presented to the viewers through the romance between the main characters. Watchers can't help but shout "so wonderful!"
After the video was uploaded online, it immediately garnered much discussion among the students—Wow, the library was not just a place to borrow books and study, but also has such cool places, and there's even a texting service! Our library is truly awesome! Love the library…and so on. The initial surprise has later become a big excitement, and gradually "Fall in Love with the Library" is no longer just a film title but an aspiration for the students.
The film had also received recognition from libraries around the world. In March 2012, it won first prize of the 10th International Federation of Library Association (IFLA), becoming the first Chinese library to win such honor. Now the second season of the film is in preparation, so students are you ready to share your "love" for the library with us?
