A Bit About my Presentation...


Digitizing Your Library: Easy & Quick Ideas


My presentation will be live at: 12:30–12:45 pm ET

Moderated by Christina Vercelletto, news editor, School Library Journal.

Looking for ways to make your library a bigger part of the community? Hear how one librarian and her team began collecting resources and materials and worked together to digitize and integrate them into the library’s catalog. See an effective model to emulate for creating an easily accessible digital archive that can ultimately create a larger sense of community.

More Information About the Event Itself...

On October 19, 2016, Library Journal, School Library Journal, and thousands of library professionals from around the world will gather for the eighth annual Digital Shift virtual conference to focus on the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital transition’s impact on libraries and their communities.
As technology evolves, so do the needs of communities, and more than ever, libraries are uniquely positioned to provide services to lead their communities and beyond. The “digital shift” continues to press libraries forward as it allows and compels them to create and improve library service through the smart and coherent application of technology to mission.
