Looking for a quick way to see if the Alaska Libraries iREAD Showcase on YouTube has anything that can help you? Check out this “Cliffs Notes” version of the webinar. Included are types of events discussed and the time stamp (minutes:seconds) on the YouTube video (see bottom of blog post for the video). I also created Bibliocommons lists of book titles discussed. I did not include every title mentioned.
Spend a few minutes looking at this quick view of the YouTube video and see if there is anything of interest in the one hour and 20-minute webinar. Hope this saves you some time and helps your summer reading planning.
Let us know if you would like to see more quick view versions of webinars.
