Parents are faced with ever-expanding media options to share with their children, and many children’s librarians are beginning to incorporate apps and eBooks for young children into their collections and programming to satisfy the growing need for reader's advisory in the app space ("Appvisory"). This webinar will explore why and how incorporating digital media into our collections and programming is now an essential part of children’s librarianship, and tips and tricks for translating traditional storytelling techniques into the digital realm.

In this YALSA e-course, participants will learn why teens need librarians to integrate technology into every aspect of service from homework help to readers' advisory to programming.

Participants will learn firsthand how to create online maps; how to properly use maps in library webpages; how to embed GIS technology into library projects (and the benefits of it!); and how to enjoy GIS and mapping technologies in personal endeavors.
