A302: Social Media & Mobile Apps: Tips & Tools for Innovative Services

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Cheryl Ann Peltier-Davis, Digital Initiatives, Cataloguing & Metadata Services Librarian, Alma Jordan Library, The University of the West Indies

As the volume of free online resources continues to grow exponentially, so do the challenges faced by librarians and other information professionals in their task of finding, evaluating, and facilitating community access to this free content. This presentation promotes free social media tools and mobile apps and shows how these can be successfully applied in libraries and other working environments. Developed specifically for “info pros” who want to use tech tools to innovate, improve, and add value to services, it focuses on innovative concepts and trends that are rapidly being “mashed up” and adopted in the library world. Learn about tools and apps supporting the latest trends in cloud storage, crowdfunding, ebooks, makerspaces, MOOCs, news aggregation, photo and video sharing, self-publishing, social networking and bookmarking, video conferencing, visualization, and wearable technology.
