Many thanks for a great panel at ALA Annual! Tess Prendergast, Carisa Kluver & I were there in person to discuss the Role of Apps in Children’s & Teen Services , and Barbara Klipper was there with us in spirit but not in person because she was attending her Caldecott committee meeting.

Below are slides from Tess, Barbara and I, along with links to Carisa’s review & evaluation resources, and the following handouts:
