Are You Feeling The Pressure?
The Ratcheting Up of Academic Library Technology
Friday, Feb. 1, 2008 (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
In a technology landscape in which gadgets, gizmos, software and Web 2.0 innovations hit us at an ever accelerating pace, how do we successfully manage technology adoption in our libraries? This workshop addresses the challenge of the technology ratchet, and how to keep it from tightening its grip around your staff and patrons.
Steven Bell will share ideas and techniques for regaining control over library technology with an exploration of how we might better identify and adopt the technologies that are right for our libraries, how we can more effectively offer staff development for using those technologies, and how each staff member can develop a personal professional development strategy for staying ahead of the technology curve.
