Panel Program Slides with discussion topics

Implementing technology can be both an exciting and hard endeavor. Who doesn't know the scenario of Library meets technology, technology woo's library, library implements technology, technology disappoints. Please join us where our emerging technology librarians present common miscommunications between those that implement the technology and those that use it. By walking the audience through a number of scenarios, the audience will learn to identify when there are communication problems and learn tips on how to improve understanding on the project. Sponsored by LITA Emerging Technologies Interest Group.
