TechSoup for Libraries: It's a Jing Thing

Earlier this week, Sharon Moreland blogged about the success the crew at the Northeast Kansas Library System has been having with Jing, a tool that allows you to capture content from a computer screen to create videos. It sounded so good that Cindi Hickey (at the State Library of Kansas) and I decided to try the tool out, too!

Life with Koha

The NExpress shared catalog has been on Koha for a little over three months now and we just added the Ottawa Library to the family over Thanksgiving. A perk of working with LibLime is that they have staff in both the US and Canada. The Canadian migration team worked away while we ate turkey and stuffing!

Learning as I go: thoughts on migrating to Koha (take two)

Remember how I was a library director the last time I blogged about Koha? Life was so much simpler then. Koha migration from the administrative side is full of "opportunities for creative problem solving," like figuring out how to keep track of decisions, discussions, questions, bugs, problems, perks, and quirks related to the catalog and the migration process.

Top 10 list of why my patrons will love Koha

Whenever I introduce some new program, service, collection, or web site feature, I have a small worry that it will backfire. If I were in a large system, I'd do surveys and interviews and find out before I launched that it would be well received. Well, I'm not in a big system, so I just do it.
