Tech Planning in 90 Minutes (from Managing Library Technology: A LITA Guide)

Do you want to get a better handle on taming the technological beast in your library? This lightning-paced interactive session offers a brief preview of the new book Managing Library Technology: A LITA Guide and the session offers you a chance to kick start a technology plan for your library. The book is based on Carson Block’s ALA-APA CPLA Class “Management of Technology” and features ideas and practices that have been field-tested for years, offering a solid approach to understanding and managing the things that remain constant in an ever-changing world.

While a true technology plan takes more than 90-minutes to create, this session will help you get off the dime. Attendees will be given a worksheet to guide table conversations in key areas of technology planning, and will be given opportunities to share their ideas with other attendees.
