About 100 attendees visited our joint poster session and open house during the SLA Annual Conference last week. The poster session was co-hosted by the Social Science, Academic, Education, and Museums, Arts & Humanities divisions.
iPads, Kindles, and Tablets, Oh My: Using a Technology Petting Zoo to Teach National Defense University Library Users About Downloadable eBooks - Lily McGovern, Dawn Humphrey, Julie Arrighetti, Michael McNulty, Karen Cooper, Pamela Stroh, Brianna Buljung (contractor), National Defense University Library
Brianna Buljung’s poster about using a technology petting zoo to introduce library users at the National Defense University to eBooks was voted the favorite by attendees. Brianna will receive a gift card donated by West – a Thomson Reuters Company.
