“Systems for Services and Discovery (RUSA Emerging Technologies Section) is organizing a panel session during the upcoming ALA Conference in Chicago. We are very excited for the sponsorship of Library H3lp and will be giving away 10 $30 Amazon giftcards to audience members. We hope you can join us!
The first years of college present many opportunities for libraries to make an impact on students’ development. Creative librarians in small and large academic institutions are employing technologies, such as library tours via mobile apps, digital collaboration tools, research suite services and tutorials, and innovative discovery tool technologies, among others. In this panel presentation, we will highlight three examples of ways libraries are using emerging technologies to enhance the first year experience of students. The speakers will be Michelle Bishop (SUNY Oswego), David Sharp (Carleton), and Sarah LeMire (Texas A&M University).
