NCompass Live: Innovation on a Shoestring: Free & Cheap Tools - Recorded Online Session 

Description

Libraries everywhere are dealing with tight budgets and shrinking staff. Small and medium libraries are particularly hard hit by these issues. So, how are they maintaining a respectable level of technology and library service innovation with little or no money and staff? They are starting new programs, bringing in new resources, and developing new partnerships by harnessing the full potential of new internet tools, technologies, and websites. This session will highlight some very creative responses from small and rural libraries in middle America. Attendees will pick up some great ideas they can take back and use at their own library, no matter what the size, to provide innovative library services and programming.

Presenters: Louise Alcorn, Technology Services Coordinator, West Des Moines (IA) Public Library, and Christa Burns, Library Development Consultant, Nebraska Library Commission.
