Library Technology Planning for Today and Tomorrow: Part 2
The prospect of technology planning can seem overwhelming and time-consuming, especially for those who work in an already short-staffed library. However, a robust technology plan can help you create an environment that truly meets the needs of the community your library serves.
During this two-part series, we will explore the steps to create a practical technology plan that can help move your library and community forward. This two-part series guides attendees on creating a community-based technology plan from the first steps of planning to how to implement their technology plan successfully.
Part Two will focus on writing an effective technology plan and how to create an implementation plan for technology that will work.
Between classes and following the Part Two webinar, the instructor will work with attendees on their plans.
The webinar will create a framework for attendees to develop a plan for their library
Attendees will gain an understanding of their library and community’s technology needs
Attendees will understand the tools and decisions that need to be incorporated into a working technology plan
