Open for Business!

Simple Joy, Jennifer Koerber, 2016

Simple Joy, Jennifer Koerber, 2016 – See note below

Today, with the newness of spring outside, I’m officially hanging out my shingle. As of May 2016, I am available for training, speaking, consulting, and writing/editing services in the central New England area or online. Please contact me via email at jennifer.koerber@gmail.com for more information or an estimate.

Here’s what I do:

My thanks to everyone who has helped make this day possible – former colleagues at the Boston Public Library, friends and supporters from grad school on, my family, and my husband Matthew, who has always been there for me.

I’m looking forward to working with you soon!

Note on the photo: I’m also participating in Somerville Open Studios with my husband Matt this weekend, April 30 – May 1. If you’re local this weekend, feel free to stop by and say hi! Information at the SOS website/my profile.

Coding at the Library – a Library Journal webinar

Here are the slides and handout from my webinar for Library Journal: Coding as a Practical Library Program. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Coding Programs at Libraries – Handout

Thank you to Carmen and Saadia for the opportunity to speak with you and show the many possibilities for coding programs at the library, and for Brook & Code.org for all the work they do to support students and educators in coding.

Good luck, and have fun!

Breakfast talk during PLA in Denver

On the Friday morning of PLA, I presented to a great room full of library administrators and directors on a model for evaluating emerging technologies in a public library setting.

The blurb: Public libraries are being asked to do something they’ve never really had to do: continuously evaluate an ever-increasing stream of New Tech for use or relevance to the library setting. How can a model help them navigate these new waters?

Edited to add: I’ve taken down the slidedeck for now because I’m revamping this talk for another use. It’ll be back, no worries.
