Virtual Conference: Leap into the Future of School Libraries

Save the date! Thursday 29th February from 6pm – 9pm (UK time) for the ‘Leap into the Future of School Libraries’ virtual conference hosted by the San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Information. See what they did there? ‘Leap into…’ 29th February? Leap Year? Ah, forget it.

If you’d like to skip to a certain subject, we’ve provided a breakdown and timings below…

00:00 – Introduction

If you have a question about effective digital curation (not only of digital-native resources but also digitising analogue assets, such as books, photographs, maps, audio recordings, etc.) and how these digital resources can be organised and used to enhance the learning experience in your school library, we thoroughly recommend you register for this FREE webinar.

Our partner Concord (the developers of our Infiniti school library management system) and Madison Dearnaley of Madison’s Library will be giving a 20-minute presentation about our digital curation and virtual learning hub LibPaths and how it can be used, alongside Infiniti, to collate content and links to physical and digital resources (on whichever subjects you like) to build “themed portals” to attract and engage students any time, anywhere, from any device.

Madison will no doubt be familiar to readers of the Great School Libraries blog as her Professional Learning and Development Series for School Librarians and Library Staff is highly recommended.

The conference is free to attend, but registration is required. Simply click or scan the QR code below.
