Introducing library services brick by brick

The combination of fine libraries and LEGO bricks is not new and is often seen in the library blogosphere…
It is now wonder. Libraries are magnificent and LEGO is fun – What is not like?
This LEGO stop motion movie promotes the Faculty Library of Social Sciences at University of Copenhagen and it is absolutely awesome… Enjoy!

The video is Directed by Informationspecialists Hazel Engelsmann (haen@kb.dk, @engelsmann) & Marc Sales (masa@kb.dk, @docterz). Produced by Head of Faculty Library Christian Lauersen (@clauersen)

I have posted stop motion lego movies before – So if you want more.. Here you are.
