NCompass Live: Boopsie-Daisy, Easy-Peasy! One librarian's experience with Boopsie mobile app development - Online 


Louise Alcorn, Reference Technology Librarian for the West Des Moines (Iowa) Public Library, will recount her experiences earlier this year working with Boopsie, Inc. to create a library mobile app: why her library chose to go with a private developer instead of DIY mobile app, pros and cons of this decision, costs (money and time), their experience with the process, and why they're glad they went mobile.

NCompass Live is broadcast live on Wednesdays, from 10am - 11am Central Time. Convert to your time zone on the Official U.S. Time website or use the World Clock Time Zone Converter. In the Time Zone Converter, NCompass Live is broadcast from U.S.A - Nebraska - Lincoln.

NCompass Live is presented online using the GoToWebinar online meeting service. GoToWebinar login instructions are sent to registered attendees after registration for a session has closed.
