Hi, I’m Jennifer!

Jennifer Koerber headshot - blue hairCurrent Events: As of 2019, I have decided to focus on my primary work: as a training specialist developing training programs for libraries. My current contract is with the SUNY Library Consortium through August 2020, and I’m actively seeking a next opportunity. That said, I am still available for occasional workshops or speaking engagements – please contact me to discuss.

The Short Bio: Jennifer has 20 years of experience in libraries, in both public-facing and behind-the-scenes roles. After 17 years at the Boston Public Library, she established her own business providing technology training and consulting services to libraries. In 2017, Koerber became staff Training Manager for the Harvard Library ILS migration and pivoted her career to follow this new path. She has written extensively for Library Journal, and is the co-author (with Michael P. Sauers) of Emerging Technologies: a Primer for Librarians (Rowman & Littlefield, 2015). In May 2018, her book Library Services to Immigrants and New Americans: Celebration and Integration was released by Libraries Unlimited.

A Bit More: Jennifer is a self-hacked tech-savvy librarian, and guided people interacting with technology for more than 20 years as a children’s librarian, reference librarian, library branch manager, web services librarian, public training curriculum coordinator, consultant/trainer, and staff training program manager. She earned her MSLIS from Simmons College in 1998 and worked for the Boston Public Library for 17 years before setting out on her own. She has written articles on library innovation and professional development for Library Journal, The Digital Shift, and Publishers Weekly, and has delivered dozens of trainings on technology and online life to staff and the public.
