Session Title

Untethered: Utilizing an iPad Flashcard App to Interactively Engage and Educate Attendees at Outreach Activities

Description

Attracting event attendees to stop and interact with library staff about library resources and services is a persistent problem in librarianship, especially when you are competing against other, “flashier” exhibits within the immediate area. The challenge is to come up with a way to captivate people and engage them long enough to enlighten them about what the library has to offer that doesn’t involve lugging around a heavy or awkward laptop and requiring access to often patchy or expensive internet service.
