New Webinar Archives on WebJunction Kansas
Now you can find links to the archives of webinars hosted by the State Library of Kansas in the Kansas Continuing Education tab on WebJunction Kansas. Two new archives have been added this week:
- New Web Catalog: Amazing, Cool, Personalized – How many times have you heard your patrons and staff complain that the Web catalog should work more like Amazon or Barnes & Noble online? For Johnson County Library, BiblioCommons was the catalog interface their staff and patrons had been dreaming of. With BiblioCommons, Johnson County patrons and staff get the functionality and personalization options they want, and the library didn’t have to replace its ILS to get it. Michelle Beesley and Erica Reynolds from the Johnson County Library share how they selected BiblioCommons as their new Web catalog and how it has benefited patrons and staff alike. In two months, Johnson County has gathered over 38,000 registered users and and they love their new web catalog. Find out more about Bibliocommons through Beth Jefferson’s, Founder of Bibliocommons live demonstration of BiblioCommons, including information about its interface that sits on top of the library’s existing ILS and is available as a hosted service allowing the library to free staff time from server maintenance and software updates.
