PCI Webinar with Al Carlson
OverDrive and E-Readers: Keeping It Simple For Your Users
Free library books on your eReader! Who wouldn’t want that? If your library provides eBooks from OverDrive, all your patrons have to do is take them. Well, almost. In real life, it’s a bit complicated getting those books from the web site to an eReader.
Al Carlson’s webinar will give you the tools and skills you and your patrons need to make the task easy, whether the eReader is a Nook, a Kindle, a tablet, or a smart phone.
As a bonus, Al will also provide you with resources that you can use when you are working with your patrons and coworkers.
Al Carlson ~ Biography
Al Carlson has been working in libraries since 1959, professionally since 1970. During that time he has watched technology go from non-existent to all encompassing. And libraries have consistently been behind the curve.
His goal now is to help libraries play like Wayne Gretzky, and “Skate to where the puck will be, not to where it’s been.”
His career has included public service, tech services, automation, and management at public, school, academic and special libraries. Recently, he retired as the System Administrator at the Tampa Bay Library Consortium where he managed and provided support for Overdrive and Ask a Librarian programs.
