Volunteers Needed – Cool Tools Cafe 2019

As the AALL Annual Meeting approaches, we are still looking for presenters for this year’s edition of Cool Tools Café!  Cool Tools will be at a new time this year: Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 PM!

This year’s program will feature demos of tools, apps, and gadgets that will help librarians create, organize, and deliver information, increase productivity, and connect with users.  Each presenter will present a short (about five minutes) talk about their tool to all attendees.

Following the main program speakers will be available for more in-depth discussions.  The presenters will each move to a demo table to show the tool and answer questions. Presenters will need to bring their own laptops and/or non-laptop devices for the demo table.  Once again, The Cool Tools Café is Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 PM!

Would you or a colleague be willing to demo a technology at Cool Tools Café? Prep time is minimal since all that is needed is a brief explanation and demo of the tool and a 1-page handout to post on the web. If you would like to help but can’t demo we could use a couple of people to help direct attendees to various demos and answer questions.

BYO gadget/laptop is strongly preferred, but let us know if that is not possible and we can try to find an alternative.

Please email Caroline directly to volunteer or if you have any questions.
