Innovative Tools and Apps: What's Hot


About The Webinar

Are there interesting new tools and/or apps emerging that are revolutionizing the work being done by scholars, researchers, and students? This event will convene a variety of information community professionals to talk about the tool or app that they know to be indispensable to either themselves or their community. What does it do? Why is it important? What else do you wish it did? And what does this resource portend for the future?

Confirmed Speakers: Alvin Walker, Product Development Manager, American Psychological Association; Jennifer Leffler, Associate Professor and Technical Services Manager, University of Northern Colorado; Elizabeth German, Assistant Professor and Services Design Librarian, Texas A & M University; Ranti Junus, Systems Librarian, Michigan State University

For Online Events

  • You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.

  • Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
