I chose an article from the ALA site regarding how libraries are going forward with technology upgrades even though the budgets are being slashed. I actually chose to focus on one section of the article. There is quite a disproportionate difference between technologies available depending on whether or not the library is rural or urban, with the urban libraries a vast superior amount technological access and help.
The infographic site I chose to use was Easel.ly. This tutorial on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsfrlfCqEJM) is very concise but actually quite helpful to create basic graphic from a blank slate.

I will also have to confess that this is my second infographic. My first one disappeared when I saved it the wrong way. So, I quickly reworked it and tried to recreate it as closely as I could. It might not be as straight as my first attempt.
