Chances are you agree that technology training should be an ongoing priority for library staff. After all, it can help library staff perform their job duties more effectively and efficiently and is absolutely key to professional development in today's society. All too often, however, staff training falls by the wayside as a result of the "fire-fighting" that librarians are called to perform on a daily basis. Keeping on top of technology changes is certainly challenging, but it is also essential to the well-being of an effective 21st century library. With this in mind, this session will explore technology resources that you and your staff can use to stay current in the ever-changing information industry. Resources discussed will include: using an RSS reader to aggregate relevant industry reading materials, participating in web-based trainings (WebJunction, WebEx, etc.), and understanding the need to embrace advancements in library technology.
