Check it out! More Keep Up! Practical emerging technology for you and your library workshops are headed across the western US in April and May! You can sign up for any of these workshops (except Hawaii which is at capacity already) by following this link.
Monday, April 3rd at the University of Hawaii Manoa in Honolulu.
**This class has filled to capacity**
Tuesday, April 18th and Wednesday, April 19th at the San Francisco Public Library.
Friday, May 19th at Albertson College in Caldwell, ID (just barely outside of Boise).
Thursday, May 25th at the Lewis & Clark Library in Helena, Montana.
Tuesday, June 6 at the Claremont College Library in Claremont, California.
This will be an updated version of the class with a fair amount of new material. Beginning in July and going through December we will also offer a small batch of Keep Up! Workshops as well. Early speculation envisions us very likely seeing the class headed back to Oregon, Washington and…? Any suggestions? Please let me know!
Also, several libraries and library systems have had us bring the workshop to their library exclusively for a day or two or three. These “custom trainings” as we call them can often be arranged outside of the schedule mentioned above. This arrangement allows you to bring as many of your library staff (and they have to be from a single library or library system) to the training as your like. Some libraries have had us (me;) stay an extra day or two to do a couple/few three and 1/2 hour hands on practice sessions with class attendees as well. This has worked out VERY well! Make a blog, start using an aggregator and subscribing to RSS feeds, it’s all covered! Sweet! Please do bear in mind that due to scheduling it often takes 1-4 months for a mutually agreeable time for these trainings to arise.
Thanks so much to all of you that have come to the workshops! I really, really hope you took away some new, exciting, interesting and practical things to use in your library. Several people have told me they have and there are even blogs and RSS feeds out there to prove it! Woo Hoo!
See you soon!
