Library Now: Resources for libraries
Library Now News
This fall marks the final quarter of the Allen Family Foundation funding for the WSL Library Now project, which is providing WA libraries with the mobile app from Boopsie. Starting in January, 2015, participating libraries will be responsible for their ongoing LibraryNow subscription costs.
To provide information that libraries need for making renewal decisions, we are scheduling two Library Now webinars in October. The webinars will provide the latest from Boopsie, including information on usage statistics, the successful online marketing campaign, survey results, how to renew, new app features, and more. Staff from Boopsie will be the primary presenters. The webinar will be offered twice:
- Monday, October 13, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, October 14, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
The webinars will run on our Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) platform. Here is the link: http://sos.wa.gov/q/WillsRoom.
The agenda for the webinar is as follows:
- Statewide and individual library usage statistics
- How to get your stats
- What the numbers mean
- The successful online marketing campaign
- Project evaluation reporting
- Surprising results from the user survey
- Upcoming library staff survey
- Subscription renewals with Boopsie
- Library Now new and old
- New integration features
- LibraryNow overview
