Agnieszka Koszowska: Graphic design for effective communication in the library
This short presentation is dedicated to free and low-cost tools that can be used to communicate effectively the library’s projects and activities via websites and social media. A few free-of-charge tools, such as GIMP, Canva and Inscape, will be presented briefly, together with their useful features that might be a substitution for professional tools (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) You will also learn where to find free and useful resources for graphic designers: photos, icons or fonts to use in your graphic projects on websites and social media.

Mirjana Nešić: Multimedia apps for librarians
There are many ways in which librarians can use digital tools to improve existing services and introduce some new, such as making a book trailer, video tutorials or instructions. This presentation gives various examples of using free video and augmented reality apps which can greatly improve user experience and help librarians make their activities more interesting for readers of all ages. It also gives insight into some free apps the librarians can recommend to users to help them find a job, earn a scholarship, make an interesting presentation or just have fun.
