Web3: Not Your Grandmother’s World Wide Web with Laura Solomon

January 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm CST 3:00 pm CST

Register for live webinar or recording

It might seem like only yesterday that Web 2.0 was new and shiny, but there’s a new kid on the online block who is bringing a number of newer technologies to play.

Learn what makes the next iteration of the WWW different from its predecessors, and what new things it is already making possible.

We’ll also discuss what some of these new digital components might mean for libraries in the not-too-far future as Web3 continues to evolve.

Laura Solomon is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and a W3C-certified front-end web developer. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.

PLAN webinars are free for all Florida library staff and volunteers.
