This fast-moving session shares the tech tools that libraries have used successfully and how you can use them in your environment. New York Public Library and Chicago Public Library are getting a lot of attention for lending out mobile hot spots to their communities. Rings shares how smaller libraries can create a similar program on a manageable scale, provides tips on developing your own program, where to purchase devices, and how to package and brand them. Clasper looks at a number of online tools designed to make col- laborative projects work like clockwork including scheduling, task management, information sharing, and document versioning tools that translate well into many library settings to make collaboration more efficient and rewarding. Zaffino discusses a book recommendation app currently in beta testing, shares what the first users are saying, and more. Gunderson illustrates how to apply Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations to XML data to restructure data so that it instantly appears the way you want it to in Excel.
