ASERL Friends: A reminder that next week Elaina Norlin is creating a new webinar experience for us, featuring live video broadcast. The current registration list is below, FYI. 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!
