Dear ALCTS Members,

We need you to volunteer for ALCTS: the Division and our Sections!

The appointment process has begun.  I will be working with each Section’s appointing officer to make committee assignments this spring.  Take some time now to explore the website, especially the “Member Groups & Communities” area.

Event Transforming Technical Services: Growing IT Skill Sets Within Technical Services Departments

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Thu, Jun 14, 2012 at 01:07 am

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Drastic staff reductions and the continuous print to digital shift require a transformation of Technical Services (TS) to remain relevant. One effective approach is through growing IT skill sets within the department to become IT independent and to facilitate technology application. We will present strategies to overcome potential barriers.TS staff who have mastered IT skill sets will also describe how they are overcoming the "lost in translation" and related issues to support others moving in similar directions.
