So Many Devices, So Little Time
This webinar shares practical guidance on how libraries can help patrons with a variety of mobile devices whether through formal training or one-on-one assistance.
This event has passed.
Our library patrons want help in learning how to use their mobile devices—such as an e-reader, smartphone, or new tablet--and it can feel like an insurmountable task to help them all. Join us for some practical guidance on how libraries can help patrons with a variety of gadgets. We’ll share tips for how to set up realistic formal training sessions and how to best offer one-on-one assistance. You will also gain examples of practical training outlines, how-to guides, and video tutorials.
