Joan Frye-Williams, who spoke at NEKLS’ Fall Assembly in October, held a webinar yesterday on “Top Tech Trends for the Non-Technical”. A link to the archive has been posted on the Infopeople website.
Here’s the program description:
When it comes to technology, the gap between “I can’t believe the library has that!” and “I can’t believe the library doesn’t have that!” is getting shorter and shorter. Even if you’re not a techie at heart, you probably agree that staying abreast of new tech tools and techniques is an important part of providing relevant library service. But isn’t there some easy way to keep up with all the changes without bogging down in impenetrable details or permanently ruining what’s left of your work/life balance?
The answer, of course, is yes! Just spend an hour with Joan Frye Williams, Infopeople’s own trend spotter and tech explainer extraordinaire. Joan will bring you up to speed on what’s hot, what’s not, what you can just ignore, and what you need to know to stay in the mainstream. She’ll describe the technologies that are most likely to change the way you work, and how you can prepare for those changes. She’ll also point you towards the best technology investments for people with limited time and dollars.
Joan promises to deliver a technology update that is both painless and practical. Don’t miss it!
This one-hour webinar will be of interest to staff in all types of libraries.
