Join TSLAC’s Digital Inclusion and Library Technology Consultants Cindy Fisher and Henry Stokes as they introduce two upcoming Texas library technology grant programs in development - telehealth and digital navigators - made possible by emergency pandemic funding. Attendees will hear about a telehealth initiative from Dianne Connery of Pottsboro Library (TX) and a technology support and computer device access program called Digital Navigators from Shauna Edson and Justin Strange of Salt Lake City Public Library (UT). After learning about these programs, you’ll be invited to provide your interest and feedback on implementing these programs in your community.

Time to Upgrade Your Library’s Technology Equipment… but How?

With multiple funding opportunities now available to purchase library technology, it is a great time to assess and upgrade your technology based on your community’s needs. But how does one even start such a daunting task? Join library technologist Carson Block as he introduces tools for pinpointing technology problems and needs, provides strategies for prioritizing and purchasing new equipment, and explains how to create an ongoing maintenance plan for your library’s technology.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  • Be familiar with tools that can be used to diagnose library technology problems and help determine needs
  • Understand elements of technology planning best practices for local library use
  • Understand the process of evaluating technology products
  • Gain confidence in explaining your community’s technology needs for grant proposals and funding requests.
