Tech Tools Webinar this Friday: Skype

2011 November 3
Tech Tools With Tine

Please join us this Friday for our fourth Webinar in this very popular (and free!) Tech Tools with Tine Webinar series. This Friday our focus is on Skype, one of the most popular online communication tools available today. Skype is a software application that allows free Internet chat, voice and video calls to other Skype users, as well as calls to mobile and landline numbers for a small fee.

Why should you know about Skype (or similar web conferencing tools)? Skype can be an invaluable tool for your library staff as well as for your patrons. You can use it to conduct online meetings and interviews, saving valuable travel time and expenses. Some libraries offer special Skype workstations that patrons can use to hold online meetings with friends and family in distant locations. Other libraries use Skype to offer virtual visits with authors and other guest presenters, extending their programming reach around the globe!         

If you or your library have not yet had a chance to take a good look at Skype, please join us this Friday from 10-11am Central time. We’ll spend about 45 minutes demonstrating the nuts and bolts of Skype, and allow time for your questions!

Our presenter: Christine Walczyk is currently a PhD candidate at the University of North Texas in Library & Information Science as well as an independent technology/library consultant with Trainers-R-Us. She has 10+ years in libraries and is a veteran software trainer.
