Chronicle of Higher Ed's TechTherapy Comes to NYC!

Warren Arbogast and Scott Carlson (Photograph by Ron Aira) Join METRO February 10 as we welcome the hosts of The Chronicle of Higher Education podcast TechTherapy to lead a discussion about the libraries and IT departments. On the surface, it would seem that libraries and IT departments should have a lot in common. Librarians are increasingly interested in leveraging new tools to better serve the needs of their communities, and IT staff members possess the knowledge and skills needed to leverage these resources effectively. So why is it that these two professional cultures often find themselves on opposite sides of the aisle? Our hosts will moderate a discussion with attendees to identify common problem areas and creative solutions. This forum will be a perfect opportunity for administrators, librarians, IT staff, and students to share and learn from each others' experiences. Refreshments will be provided and there will be time to network with colleagues.
