Full Description
Wouldn't it be wonderful to get to your files no matter where you were? You now can! You can save files "to the cloud" and, as long as you have Internet access, you should be able to access them. Cloud storage is one of the newer technologies that could make your life a whole lot easier! This series, Tech Topics, is primarily lecture-based and introduces library staff to technologies that may impact libraries and library services.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define "cloud storage" and how it works
  • Identify three popular services
  • Discuss advantages and disadvantages for this type of service
