Want to reach the people in your community who can’t make it to library programs, or students and faculty working online? Nebraska Library Commission NCompass Live program broadcasts live, and records in both video and audio a variety of programs, including a monthly “Tech Talk” and a free full-day conference. And, at the MCPHS, librarians use Blackboard 9.1 to expand their educational role, teach collaboratively with faculty, and interact with students online. They enhance students’ online experience with Camtasia for tutorials and Elluminate Live for web conferencing. Hear the lessons these organizations have learned and apply them in your environment.
