Each month I have the pleasure of hosting a webinar featuring libraries and librarians from around the country talking about the Edge Initiative. We started way back in August of 2012 and each session has been recorded. By request, here is a list of all sixteen webinars and speakers so far. Thank you to these excellent speakers for sharing their experiences and expertise! Info on upcoming webinars is at the end of the post.
Back in July, we wrote about the Middletown Free Library's t-shirt fundraising campaign with TechSoup donor partner Teespring. Middletown has now created a repeat of the successful summer fundraising campaign! If you have been looking for a new fundraising idea, check out the Teespring donation program.
As we prepare for Thursday's Edge Initiative webinar with Mick Jacobsen and Toby Greenwalt from Skokie Public Library (IL), we're highlighting useful technology training resources. Whether your library is training its staff and volunteers to use Windows 8 or Excel, or helping patrons learn to use Google, the Atomic Training Donation Program at TechSoup can help you get started.
Next week, we'll be talking to Mick Jacobsen and Toby Greenwalt about staff technology skills training (register here). It's an important topic and one we regularly address here at TechSoup. As we prepare for next week, we've gathered some of our favorite recent posts and spotlights related to staff training. Enjoy!
