Below are a series of sources that some of us used for the Get into the Cloud presentation on 12-16-14.
CATS Annual Meeting Presents: Get into the Cloud
Many patrons are already using cloud services and many would benefit
from their use.
Libraries need to embrace the Cloud and leverage the adoption of
cloud services to prepare for a Cloud based digital lifestyle.
Join this panel as they discuss the reasons for adopting Cloud
services, the current and future trends of the field and practical
collaborative applications for using the cloud in libraries such as
Microsoft Office 365.
Discussion with Food and Refreshments to follow.

Thank you for attending the NYLA presentation: IT vs Librarians
Presented by Bob Johnson, Manager of Information and Technology at the Emma S. Clark Library, Ellen Druda, Internet Services Librarian at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library, and Stephen Ingram, Digital Services Librarian at the Northport-East Northport Public Library
NYLA 2014 Conference Saturday, November 8
Program Slot #7
9:30 AM – 10:45 AM
There is a longstanding belief that IT staff and Librarians are two departments separated by a different language. The vast changes in access to high speed internet, the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, and the variety of formats in which digital content are consumed is changing how these departments can best serve their communities patrons. IT services and Library services will have to collaborate to adapt the traditional library system to serve the rapidly advancing technological needs of our patrons.

Guide to setting up a Google Chromebox as an OPAC courtesy of Melanie Hedgespeth of the Salinas Public Library, as presented by Eric Cohen of JJML at the TIF meeting on 4/3/2014.
Melanie’s document contains a long list of Blacklist exceptions because she allows patrons to use the Chromebox for other library-related purposes in addition to accessing the catalog. Also her list has exeptions for her catalog, not the PALS catalog. If you would like to set up a your Chromebox as a more traditional (and limited) OPAC with access to the PALS catalog, use the following for your Blacklist extensions:
Of course, this list may be modifies to suit your needs.
