In my new job (Director of Collections and Acquisitions Services…lah dee dah!) I’ve been thinking that I would hold a “new technology” meeting once a month…kind of First Monday sort of thing. Only it would probably be more like Fourth Friday. Or Third Thursday.
I’d use these meetings to just highlight or introduce 2.0 technology and other developments that might impact library collections. I’d want it to be a no-stress kind of first look. “Here is something new. What do you think about it?” There are many things that could go on such an agenda. I think I wouldn’t have to worry about coming up with stuff. I’d also like to let the staff present things themselves, introduce stuff they know about and are interested in.
