This week I had the pleasure of attending the Georgia Public Library Service’s Technology Boot Camp. This event, held at the Unicoi State Park for the second year in a row, is one of my absolute favorites! It’s a time when IT folks, directors, educators, and all-around awesome library people come together to share ideas, to hear about new technology, and to learn about the future of tech in libraries.
I was honored that the organizer, the awesome Emily Almond at the GPLS, allowed me and my colleague Burr Osoinach to share information about two projects we’re working on right now: Using Tech to Teach Tech and Bridging the Divide: Bringing Digital Content to the Community. I’ll be posting my notes from the other sessions shortly. In the meantime, if you’re interested, you can check out the agenda here.
A few of us live-tweeted the event; you can see the recap below (we used the hashtag #gplsbootcamp):
