Creating a long-range technology planning document requires more than just understanding planning. Intertwined among the library's mission, goals, objectives, and strategies, you will find references to infrastructure, telecommunications, and applications. During this "pen-in-hands-on" workshop, we discuss the major elements of a long-range plan, reasons to create a long-range plan, and E-Rate requirements. We critique sections of planning documents, begin writing or modifying your own. The focus of this workshop is to create one technology plan usable for any opportunity. Be sure to bring a sharpened pencil and a sharpened mind!
