The LITA Guide to No- or Low-Cost Technology Tools for Libraries provides a practical guide on how to find and use technology tools for a variety of purposes in libraries and, more broadly, in education. Each topic showcases two technology tools in detail and discusses additional tools and provides examples of how librarians or educators are using them in libraries and schools. Types of tools covered are: -Video creation tools, such as PowToon and Animaker, can be used to create animated videos to tell patrons about a new service or teach students about search strategies. -Screencasts includes tools like Jing or Screencast-O-Matic, which can be used to show how to use a new library database or service. -Collaboration tools, including tools such as Padlet or Lino It, can be used for student collaboration or teamwork with colleagues and sharing project ideas quickly and easily. -Assessment tools such as Quizizz and Kahoot allow for gamified assessment of student or patron knowledge.
