Show Notes:

Join us for future episodes! If you’re interested, please post a comment below on the Adventures in Library Instruction blog or send us an email! We’d love to have you be a part of our Skype discussion or participate in a one-on-one interview. OR you can record your own a segment of something fabulous you’re doing with library instruction techniques, technology, or methods!


  1. Just a note that we ran out of time before reading the listener mail from last month's episode, and we kind of wanted to save it for Rachel's return anyway. We'll get to it next month.

  2. Would it be possible to post when the guide on the side software becomes available?

  3. we will certainly keep our eyes and ears open for its release and give it a shout out to all!
