Technology envelops every aspect of librarianship, so it is important to keep up with new technology tools and find ways to use them to improve services and better help patrons. This hands-on, interactive preconference will teach six-to-eight technology tools in detail and show attendees the resources to find out about 50 free technology tools that can be used in all libraries. There will be plenty of time for exploration of the tools, so please BYOD! You may also want to bring headphones or earbuds.
Additional LITA-sponsored preconference sessions (also from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on June 24) include "Digital Privacy and Security: Keeping You and Your Library Safe and Secure in a Post-Snowden World" and "Islandora for Managers: Open Source Digital Repository Training".
