If, however, you're dealing with small spaces and limited staff and resources, yet want to provide technology training in your community, then please sign up!
“Must Love Gadgets!” Small library’s new digital resources position is a bet on the future
Submitted by Brenda Hough on 18 January 2013 - 8:33am
When David Hanson was hired as the director of the Linwood (KS) Community Library, he knew he was going to want to make some changes and that those changes would not always be easy. One change involved staffing. A 20 hour per week clerk position was open at the library, but instead of hiring someone to fill that position, David saw it as an opportunity to help the library build for the future. He wanted to turn the clerk position into a position focused on digital resources.

If you don't know what ARSL is or why you should go, you should. Allow me to take a few steps back to get everyone up to speed: ARSL is the most excellent Association for Rural and Small Libraries, and next month is the organization's annual conference, where rural and small librarians and staff gather to learn from each other. Sound too good to be true?
