To quickly and easily add an image to a document or presentation, try a targeted screen shot! On a Mac, display the image you would like to use on your screen, then hit Command⌘+shift+4. This will turn your mouse into crosshairs that you can drag to “clip” the image as a screenshot. That screenshot will automatically save to your desktop. In your document or presentation, click insert image, then drag or upload the screenshot from your desktop. Don’t forget to write down the source of the image before you close it out, and remember to cite it (bit.ly/MLAimage) properly in your completed paper or presentation!

Teen Tech Week (bit.ly/TTW14) is a national initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) aimed at teens, their parents, educators, and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technology—especially the types offered through libraries. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to take advantage of the technology at libraries for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals who can help them achieve greater digital literacy. We will be promoting TTW in the LMC throughout the month. If you’d like ideas on how to incorporate Teen Tech Week into your lesson plans, please stop by the LMC for more information.
