ncompassLiveMed.jpgJoin us for the next NCompass Live: “Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Excel at Rearranging Your Library”, on Wednesday, November 27, 10:00am – 11:00am CT.

Eventually, librarians need or want to rearrange their libraries. Rearranging bits of paper is tricky. Chris Rippel, from the Central Kansas Library System, demonstrates how to use Excel to draw alternative floor plans. His free Excel spreadsheet offers principles and examples for creating layouts that will entice people to move around your library to use more of your collection and library resources. We will talk about powerpaths, signage, display placement and rolling chairs in the stacks.

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.

I’ll admit it’s not the best presentation I’ve ever delivered but I believe the attendees appreciated it.
