ASERL Friends:

ASERL's Elaina Norlin is creating a new webinar experience for us, featuring 
live video broadcast.  We hope you can join us!

You have heard about Voice Assistants and Smart Speakers, but how are they 
relevant for your library? Broward County Libraries currently has an Echo 
device on every public service desk through its partnership with Amazon. Bob 
Anstett will provide a LIVE DEMONSTRATION on Alexa and other Voice Assistants 
that you can use in the library. Bob will cover some of the many forms they 
take and give hints on how to get the best use out of them. He will also cover 
how they apply in a library setting for both assisting customers and discuss 
privacy concerns. So make sure you bring your questions as we look forward to a 
lively, interactive discussion!

Robert “Bob” Anstett is the Coordinator for Digital Initiatives for Broward 
County Libraries. Bob is in charge of the Creation Station at the Main Library 
in Fort Lauderdale as well as Creation Station Business and other creative 
spaces around the County. Bob likes to say that he “lives in the future” where 
he gets to work with 3D printing, creative design, hands-on maker projects, and 
robotics. He is currently organizing and running a robotics track for the 
public to learn coding and building robots, as well as a Virtual Reality (VR) 
track with an Oculus Rift & HTC Vive along with other VR & Augmented Reality 
(AR) gear such as a Microsoft HoloLens available for the public to try out and 
develop. Bob works at building connections with the local community and the 
library, along with fostering cooperation between libraries around the State of 
Florida and beyond!
