Library Corner

Easy and free technology is closer than you think. While our library has plenty tools for employees to use, there are plenty online that might interest you. Contact the library staff and let them help you research the tools and technology that interest you.

Below are some free online tools to get you started on your journey to exploring online technology.

Bookmarking. Access your bookmarked websites whenever you are online with tools like Delicious or Diigo.

Blogs. The library staff can help you find blogs to read on a particular topic, or help you find tools like Blogger or WordPress to create your own.

Calculators. The web contains several calculates, from tools like Wolfram | Alpha which does many computations, to a more familiar-looking calculator such as Web 2.0 Scientific Calculator.

Online presentations. Create presentations and share them online with tools like Prezi, Zentation, and Slideshare.

If you know what you want to do with technology, but you aren't quite sure if it's possible, chat with our expert library staff. They'll be able to do some research to find out what tools will suit your needs.
