With the cost of purchasing an ILS completely out of reach for a library in a village of 128 people, Beth Kulacz, the Director of the Broadwater (NE) Public Library, decided she was going to build her own. Join us to learn how Beth designed and coded a system specifically for her small library and how you can get a copy of her shareware application to use for your own library.
In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library. There will also be plenty of time in each episode for you to ask your tech questions. So, bring your questions with you, or send them in ahead of time, and Michael will have your answers.
