B305: New Tools: Science Search & Curation for Libraries

3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Sam Molyneux, General Manager, Chan Zuckerberg Meta
Julia Huprich, Director, Content Strategy, Intellum
Christopher K. Baker, Training Manager, Gwinnett County Public Library Content Curator, Intellum

This session provides an overview of several new free tools. The first is a search tool developed and then purchased by the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation. Get a good look at what Meta 2.0 can do. The second tool comes from Intellum, a technology company that provides learning and collaboration solutions to companies including Google, Facebook, and Pinterest. It found that all of its clients struggle with presenting fresh, modern learning content that keeps up with the expectations of their learners. So it hired a team of librarians and professional content curators to help build a solution for identifying and sharing the best of the freely available content on the internet. This curation tool presents a powerful new approach for reference, patron training and staff training. See how librarians and content curators demonstrate features of the tool and share use cases for libraries of all types.
