I haven't seen the webcast.  We have pictures of library users on our home
page, and student workers "acting" in our video tour.  I always specifically
ask for permission before I put recognizable pictures on the web site, and
the students in the video all signed release forms.  It would probably be a
good idea if we did that for the people in the photos on the home page.
