Oct: Cloud Computing For Librarians: An Introduction (ALA)

Thursday, October 23, 2014  /  2:30pm ET

What does cloud computing actually mean, and how can you put it to use for your library and your library's users? In this new workshop, Krista Godfrey, Web Services Librarian at Memorial University of Newfoundland, will introduce you to the cloud, explaining how it works in straightforward terms. She'll then show how you can use cloud-based tools to collaborate, save money, and make your library more efficient.
By attending, you'll better understand:
•    the cloud and its implications for librarians and library staff
•    how to use the cloud for personal productivity and professional development
•    using the cloud to support library users
•    how mobile devices interact with the cloud
