Libraries: Spaces to Teach and Troubleshoot Technology

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This interactive session focuses on the idea that technology support and teaching could become an integral dimension of reference and adult services work. The session starts with mini-talks of 10 minutes in which the three panelists each discuss their work related to this topic: Lenstra discusses results from a year-long community informatics study of tech support at adult services desks at three public libraries. House discusses building collaborations with campus Information Technology Services (ITS) such that ITS becomes embedded in every library space across the community college. Williams discusses the Library “Senior Geek Squad,” which exists to help older adults become familiar and comfortable with various types of technology and to become active users of their digital devices, with sessions both held at the library and off-site in the community.

The session will then transition into an interactive discussion of the perils and possibilities associated with bringing technology support and teaching into reference and adult services work. This session will prepare you to embed tech support and instruction into your library's reference and information services.
