Planning for Technology

 Registration is closed for this event
The phrase "technology plan" is nothing new for the library world. Although the structure of the technology plan itself has not changed much over the years, the planning piece has. With such rapid changes in technology, how do you plan 5 years in the future, much less 3? Or even 1? You may find yourself asking why you even need a technology plan and where you will find the time to create one.
 

The phrase "technology plan" is nothing new for the library world. Although the structure of the technology plan itself has not changed much over the years, the planning piece has. With such rapid changes in technology, how do you plan 5 years in the future, much less 3? Or even 1? You may find yourself asking why you even need a technology plan and where you will find the time to create one.

To top off these uncertainties, there are other considerations such as resources, including staff time and money, as well as the changing interests and understanding of your patron base, that have to be taken into consideration.
