Building Pathfinders with Free Screen Capture Tools, by Patrick Griffis

This article outlines freely available screen capturing tools, covering  their  benefits  and  drawbacks  as  well  as  their potential applications. In discussing these tools, the author illustrates how they can be used to build pathfinding tutorials for users and how these tutorials can be shared with users. The author notes that the availability of these screen capturing tools at no cost, coupled with their ease of use, provides  ample  opportunity  for  low-stakes  experimentation from library staff in building dynamic pathfinders to promote the discovery of library resources.
