Starting next Monday, August 28th, Wisconsin's Digital Library will link to Libby instead of the existing OverDrive app. It will look similar to this site: https://kcls.overdrive.com/. There will be a banner graphic and the app links at the bottom will point to Libby.
We have aggregated all the resources we have collected and created on this page to help you support Libby users: https://www.wplc.info/libbyintro.

Google Summit Events
What is a Summit?
A Google for Education Summit is an open 1-2 day event primarily focused on Google Apps for Education, but can also cover additional Google products like Google Earth, YouTube for Schools, Google Search, etc. These are events organized by members of the Google Apps for Education community for members of the community.
Want to plan a Summit featuring Google for Education? Here's how to get started:

Laura Solomon, the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network, is the morning speaker for this year's Tech Days. The workshop will be held on September 12 from 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the Fitchburg Public Library and registration is now open. Choose from six different breakout sessions for the afternoon including STEM Programming with No Budget, #Hashtag: Promoting Your Library through Social Media, and our own Craig Ellefson and Tamara Ramski talking about the Digitization Kits.
If you're not attending the Wisconsin Library Association Conference, check out this opportunity. On October 18, Library Journal and School Library Journal are hosting their 8th annual FREE TechKnowledge (formerly the Digital Shift) Virtual Conference. This year's theme is Creating Equity Through Technology. Among this year's presenters are Jim Neal, the President of the American Library Association.
If you are attending the Wisconsin Library Association Conference* (and I really hope you do!), we are pleased to have some great technology programs for you including a keynote from Linda Liukas, a Finnish computer programmer and children's author, and Jessamyn West, library technologist, will be the WLTF luncheon speaker on Thursday. Registration will be open soon!
Also in October, the iSchool at UW Madison has a new course called 25 Free Tools for Librarians* that sounds awesome. Among the tools that will be covered are Wunderlist, Todo, Notability, Dragon, Convertible, Instapaper, and Kahoot. If I weren't otherwise occupied in October, I'd be signing up for this one!
* SCLS Member public libraries may use CE Grant funds to attend.
