Week 5: Exploring Two Top Trends

3 Apr

Welcome to week 5! This week we’ll be looking at 2 of what ACRL has identified as the top trends in Academic Libraries: eBook Management and Online Chat. In the eBook module, you’ll learn about the open source software program Calibre, which can help users to manage and organize e-book collections, and offers other tools for reformatting and accessing books, newspapers, and magazines. The Online Chat module provides an introduction to Mosio for Libraries and LibAnswers w/ LibChat, two web-based patron support software programs that offer tools to help libraries to connect with users. There is also an optional section that you can explore to find even more options for chat services for your organization. We’ve enjoyed reading your blogs on the modules so far, and we’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the tools we’re presenting this week!
