(January 28, 2007) e•LocalLink has updated their Google Video and put EMU back in Ypsilanti.

(January 10, 2007) Many in Ypsilanti might be shocked to learn that Eastern Michigan University is located in Battle Creek, Michigan.

At least that is what the folks at e•LocalLink think. On October 1, 2005, e•LocalLink posted a student recruiting video to Google. The video appears to have been produced by EMU. In the accompanying text, e•LocalLink says EMU is located in Battle Creek.

e•LocalLink provides video services for city governments and businesses. In a video promo on the e•LocalLink website, the mayor of Plymouth, Michigan touts the benefits e•LocalLink brings to the city of Plymouth and the local business community. However, when you go to the City of Plymouth website, it is hard to figure out how Plymouth uses or benefits from e•LocalLink.

e•LocalLink even provides a link to Eastern Michigan’s website. It is unknown if EMU is an actual client of e•LocalLink or even paid to have the video posted. As of January 9, 2007, the site still says Battle Creek.
