About the Blog

LibraryTechTalk is a library technology blog born out of Albert S. Cook Library at Towson University. Conceived and maintained by the University’s three Emerging Technologies Librarians (with spiritual guidance from the library’s IT guru), the blog serves to showcase technology tips and tools that can either be utilized immediately, or integrated over time in various areas of the academic library. Rather than give reviews or opinions, we will try to focus on practical applications of technology in many different library areas and settings.

Unless otherwise noted, authors are not affiliated with any of the products or services highlighted here… we just think they’re pretty neat.

  4. I am so happy to find your blog. I too have a real interest in new emerging technology and wish I had more time to spend checking out all the great things on the web like Yugma and Zamzar.

  5. As a researcher in search user interfaces, it’s great to see more libraries interested in how technology can work for them!

    I wrote a blog post recently about how some libraries around the nation are starting to use different online interfaces to make it easier for people to browse their collections and find what they’re looking for inside them – perhaps it’ll be something new for the Cook library to consider?
