Three Tech Tools, One Objective: Improving Library Services - Dec 9 Webinar at METRO

photo via @lwr on Flickr These days, libraries around the country are expected to do more with less.  METRO wants to help you do just that by sharing three examples of innovative technology use that expand and improve library services. On Thursday, December 9, join us for METRO’s latest Trending webinar, “Three Tech Tools, One Objective: Improving Library Services”. 

This 90-minute webinar will introduce participants to three innovative ways to improve library services.  First, Valerie Forrestal and Barbara Arnett will discuss the creation of a Javascript bookmarket that patrons can use to execute a search of library resources from any web page.  P. Charles Livermore will focus on LibAnswers as an inexpensive online reference service, demonstrating the features of LibAnswers from the perspectives of both the user and the librarian.  Finally, Benjamin Turner will discuss Quick Response (QR) codes, which can be embedded in library signage, handouts and other printed material to direct users of mobile devices to pertinent Web resources.  You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to hear your colleagues speak from their own experiences.  Join us!
