Blog is Currently on Hiatus

Hi, all! Over the past year, the training/writing/consulting business has ramped up nicely, and I just haven’t been posting blog content. So, I’ve archived the posts for now, and might revive this in the near future.

For examples of my work/writing, check out:

Should I get back to writing regularly, I’ll move this blog to the front page and you’ll be the first to know! 🙂

Emerging Technologies – a forthcoming book!

Exciting news! This May, Michael Sauers and I have a book coming from Rowman & Littlefield. It’s based on our work talking about and training on emerging technologies in many fields, not just libraries. We had a lot of fun writing it, and even though it’s a textbook, we think you’ll enjoy reading it!

Emerging Technologies - Final CoverEmerging Technologies: a Primer for Librarians
Jennifer Koerber & Michael P. Sauers
Rowman & Littlefield, May 2015

Jim DelRosso of the Catherwood Library (Cornell U) gave it a review that sums up exactly what we were going for:

“Koerber and Sauers bring a vision of library technology that is engaging, refreshing, and above all, practical. Those in search of more fads to embrace or empty platitudes to quote will need to look elsewhere; this book is full of the kind of useful information and actionable advice that will not only get you excited to tackle new projects in your library, but also help those projects succeed.”

If you order before Dec 31, 2015 and use the discount code on the flyer below, you’ll save 25% on the cover price.

Site Updating in Process

Hi, there. If you’re visiting me for the first time, I’m in the middle of switching my site over to a new domain. Welcome to my new home – make yourself comfy, I’ll be here in a little while.

ETA: And, we’re good. All the old content is here, I’ve arranged the furniture and hung curtains, though I’m definitely going to change the paint and artwork soon. Thanks for reading, and there’ll be more new new to come.
