Michael Stephens presented a great program this afternoon via OPAL titled Top Ten Technologies for Libraries 2006 which really seemed to reinforce a statement that I made last week during my SLA presentation…
"Of all the technologies available today, the ones that have the greatest influence on libraries both today and in our future, are those that libraries can't afford to purchase at any price.
Why? Because they are FREE."
Take a look at Michael’s presentation and follow along with his audio podcast and see if you can find just one technology on his list that you can’t implement or try for free!
And a plug for PLCMC staff - don't forget to sign-up for the upcoming Tech Talk workshops on Weblogs: Fresh Content, Fresh Context (Monday, April 10th) and RSS & Newsreaders (Tuesday, May 2nd) and you'll have covered over half of Michael's suggested 5 Things You Can do NOW.
