The State Library and Archives of Florida invites all Florida library staff, volunteers, and other interested people to participate in the 2010 College of DuPage Library Learning Network Series: Library Futures: Staying Ahead of the Curve: An Electronic Forum of Ideas, Issues, Information and Opportunities for Librarians.
The College of DuPage Library Learning Network webcasts are great ways to practice important skills and knowledge in the library field and meet or network with library staff in your area. These programs are available free of charge to all Floridians, through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Florida Department of State, State Library and Archives of Florida.
Technology Trends in Libraries: Tools, Skills, Staffing, Training
Friday, April 9, 2010, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Librarians know that the target of keeping technologically current is always moving, and budgets are static at best. Each year, College of DuPage teleconferences dedicate one program that takes a look at future technology trends and gives librarians an important basis for their planning efforts. Libraries are both adopters and innovators, and are increasingly looking beyond the library environment for technological innovations and solutions.
