Presented at Computers in Libraries 2009:
Have you ever had your website designed by a highly skilled intern or volunteer who has long since left? Do you enjoy playing phone tag with your institution’s IT department that is located on a different floor of the building or even a few hundred miles away? We all know about planning for hardware requirements and ensuring operating systems are compatible with the most recent ILS release, but this presentation offers ideas that may help your library create and sustain a long-lasting IT environment, including sustainable web design, use of opensource applications, harnessing the tech skills of your library staff and negotiating with your organization’s IT department, evaluating third-party products and services, as well as looking at market tendencies and forecasting trends.
