Academic Library staff will be interested in this workshop because you will learn about current technologies and devices that are used by students and faculty in your library. You will be better prepared to assist them with their technology questions. With the explosive growth of mobile devices and applications, librarians will need to think creatively about developing services for students and faculty and take into account both user needs and preferences . . . . and the relationship of services to the academic programs of their institution.
Public Library staff will find this training beneficial because they will learn how to help their patrons establish their own Dropbox, secure their online identity, and explore the safeguards for using social media. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) session includes hands-on practice with downloading eBooks on various devices to achieve confidence in assisting the patrons.
School Librarians and Media Specialists will leave this workshop with a thorough knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages inherent in Cloud Computing. As an added bonus, they will also learn to establish secure, online identities. Another component of the day will be BYOD, an interactive session (during lunch) where participants can explore various platforms such as iPads, eBook readers, iPhones, and the like.
Special Libraries will be interested in this workshop because Cloud Computing affects Special Libraries and their patrons. Being able to assist with the understanding of online identity security will help the libraries as well as its patrons.
