Choosing Technology: How We Decide What Technologies Work Best in Our Libraries
Presented by Tim Daniels
  • Wednesday, January 19, 2011, 10:00am - 11:00am Eastern Time
  • Separate registration is required for each hour-long session.
In today's environment librarians are constantly bombarded with new and emerging technologies. These technologies can run the gamut from smart phone applications to enterprise-wide systems. How can we decide which technologies are the best, which ones to keep an eye on, and which ones to avoid? During this session we will talk about decision making and apply it to technology.

Personal Knowledge Management: A Framework for Librarians

Presented by Elisabeth Shields
  • Wednesday, January 19, 2011, 11:15am - 12:15pm Eastern Time
  • Separate registration is required for each hour-long session.
Searching is the "easy" part, but what do you do with all the material youve collected? What happens when you find an article that reminds you of something someone said in a meeting two weeks ago (or was it three)? What do you do to share your own thoughts, insights from articles and blogs, and what your manager said at the last staff meeting with the team charged with developing a strategic plan?

Tools for knowledge management are usually meant for institutions and are correspondingly expensive. But there are many tools for personal knowledge management that are very affordable. Discuss personal management needs with Elisabeth Shields; hear about the types of tools available with examples of each type.
