Public Access Technology Assessment: Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center

A session at LITA Forum

Saturday 14th November, 2015

2:15pm to 3:00pm (CST)

A 21st century public library is a technology hub, a digital presence, and a vital community resource and public libraries are faced with the challenge of fulfilling the needs of diverse community members. But how can public libraries evaluate if they are meeting the technology needs of their community? Come engage in a conversation with some of the 2,500 state and public libraries using a new set of national benchmarks to assess and plan their public access technology services. Topics include challenges, “aha” moments, and lessons learned. No special technical or background knowledge needed for this session.
