Technology moves faster than a superhero. I heard a quote the other day “that technology used to change every one to two years, now its one to two days”! How can one keep up with this impossibly quick pace? No sooner have you mastered Word 2010, here comes Word 2013, which is significantly different from its earlier incarnation. Innovations are being implemented every day, and it seems there is no way to keep up.
How can we help? Then library staff offers wildly popular computer and device classes, but there are never enough of them. Stymied by a lack of a dedicated computer lab, we have cobbled together a de facto computer lab in the conference room using eight laptops. Thanks must certainly go to our patient and brilliant librarians, Veronica Reynolds and Brian Jennings who teach these classes, despite other pressing responsibilities (Head of Community Relations and Local History Librarian, respectively).
