Librarians, archivists, students, and other information professionals interested in using new technologies to collect and deliver information to users

Description:
We are bombarded on a daily basis with new technologies. No matter how much we want to use them all, we know that it's just not feasible. So how do we pick; how do we find the right tools for our libraries and for our patrons? Nicole Engard aims to help by narrowing down the list. She will discuss some of the must-try applications on the web and for your desktop, leaving you with a clearer picture of what's out there worth using in libraries and examples of how these technologies are being used by your colleagues.

By the end of this program, participants will:
• Identify must-have applications for their libraries
• Find support from colleagues to help decide on the right technology for their libraries
