Yeehaw!  It's the Tech-Talk Roundup 

As we head towards the end of 2018 we thought a look back at the weekly Tech-Talk tips would be helpful. This is a reminder that you can search the Tech-Talk archives for all posted tips, and we have highlighted a few favorites that we have found especially useful.

My Favorite Tool: Genius Scan
This month's "My Favorite Tool" column comes to us from Kelly Bohannon, branch manager of Clay County's Fleming Island Branch and a member of NEFLIN's Continuing Education Committee.
My favorite tool is one I have used many times both at work and home.
Genius Scan enables you to scan documents with your phone in extremely high quality and then export your scans as JPEG or PDF with multiple pages.  
Genius Scan also auto corrects distortion in your photo/document, so you don't have to be perfectly flat above your document. You can actually tilt your phone to avoid shadows and glare!
I have used this to copy photos and after the editing in Genius Scan, my pictures looked better than the originals. Once you have scanned a document with Genius Scan, you can export it to iBooks, your camera roll, or email.
In a library setting, Genius Scan is something I recommend to patrons since they often come to our library expecting scanning capabilities. Since we do not offer scanning, I suggest they scan with the app (since most people have a smartphone now), then email the document to themselves. Then they can print from our computer lab. This has saved many people a trip to various stores who charge for scanning.

 Member Spotlight: Robyn Doppke
The member in this month's spotlight is Robyn Doppke facilitator of the NEFLIN Teen Services Interest Group.
"I first started my library career when I was a student at FJC now known as FSCJ, in the year 1993. I began working as a student assistant in the now defunct media library, which was below the book/periodical library at FJC. I was able to study and watch many movies while working.  
Also, on Sundays I would work in the book library with a wonderful librarian from UNF. I would talk with her every Sunday and I knew once I graduated with my B.A. that I wanted to get my Masters in Library Science. I went to FSU and at that time classes were online and on campus. I loved every bit of it.  
Before graduation I worked in a High School library, not knowing a thing, but I managed to learn how to run a library while going to grad school and working at a high school. I have also worked in several colleges - my first and favorite was Jacksonville Art Institute where I was Director of the Library.  From there I went to Beijing, China, working as a International Librarian.

Since I have been home I have worked as a Librarian at a College and now I am with the Alachua County School System. I am a media specialist/librarian, where I am the on campus tech person, teach a maker space class and of course run the library. I love what I do and I cannot imagine doing anything else."
