Library staff – including some from the Columbia Pike Branch Library – had the opportunity to attend the Computers in Libraries 2010 conference, held in Crystal City. The focus for this year’s conference was on leading-edge technology that builds information fluency, transforms library operations, enables information products and services, and redefines roles within all types and sizes of library and information services.
The conference is a wonderful opportunity to learn how other libraries’ are using technology. We want to share some of the great free resources on the web that we’re looking forward to exploring:
