Cool Tool 2018 Spotlight: Blockchain

Were you unable to make it to the Cool Tools session at this past AALL Annual Meeting in Baltimore? The CS-SIS blog will be posting video recaps of last year’s sessions so that everyone can get caught up on these new and exciting technologies.

This time, Debbie Ginsberg, Educational Technology Librarian at Chicago-Kent College of Law Library, walks us through the emerging field of blockchain. Debbie walks through the nuts and bolts of Blockchain, using live demos and a blockchain “sandbox” to illustrate many of the concepts and processes underlying the final result, and then shows off a graphical representation to help visualize these complex systems.
