NCompass Live: Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Bring the Funny - Humor and the Library - Recorded Online Session 


As budgets shrink and every library is asked to do more with less, it's easy for library staff and users to forget the joy that a library can bring. As leaders in the future of libraries, we can all help bring a bit of lightness and levity back into our institutions. From appropriate April Fools' Day website 'hacks' to videos like the New Spice sensation, the sky's the limit when it comes to comedy in the library. In this Tech Talk, Jennifer Koerber, Web Services Librarian at Boston Public Library, will inspire you to bring back the funny to your work environments and communities.

In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library.
