The Maine Course

Lessons from a Maine State Library Employee
Location: 
Augusta, ME
Librarian: 
Janet McKenney
As a steering committee member of the MaintainIT Project, the Coordinator of Learning and Technology Services of the Maine State Library, and a former circuit rider, Janet McKenney has learned invaluable lessons and has a wealth of advice to share. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a circuit rider is a shared systems administrator/technology consultant. Sometimes the libraries band together themselves to hire the circuit rider, but more often than not a regional library consortium or state library provides the service for its member libraries.
