Free and Low-Cost Alternatives to Popular Software: Webinar (06/11/19)

There are many free software options available as alternatives to popular expensive software.  From editing pictures, video or documents to makerspace resources, we will examine the best software for libraries that are free to use helping your library offer a full suite of tools for staff and users.

During this session, we will delve into the world of open source and freemium software (free light versions of fee-based software).  Discuss the pros and cons of each tool, and explore ideas on how to market and train everyone to get the most from these digital tools.
