REACTIONS¡ For the most part, our data reinforced our anecdotal experience of the needs and wants of the users¡ Librarians were most interested in current and popular technologies and issues that were affecting their practice at the time, though they also seemed to have an eye to the future
TECHNOLOGY RAC RECOMMENDATIONS¡ Combine resources to address the barriers brought to light in the sur vey¡ Use information about user interest/need to develop new CE courses¡ Work on ways to be able to of fer more technology courses¡ Brainstorm deliver y methods that address established needs and barriersOne development from the results: June’s Beyond the SE/A Program
