This month’s Technology Information Forum will be held on Thursday October 6, 2016 at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library in Dix Hills, 9:30 for coffee and 10am for meeting. This month, in light of the release of IOS 10, the discussion will be centered around the level of assistance information technology and librarians provide regarding updating devices for patrons. Do you go “all in” or do you have a handout, or are you strictly hands off? Lets talk about updates on electronic devices, whether its phones, tablets, laptops or other devices (yes even GPS devices).
Also a topic for conversation, what do you do with your old technology? Once computers, monitors, keyboards and/or projectors are upgraded, how does your library dispose of them. Lets talk about how each library goes about this and think of creative ways to repurpose this technology.
Additionally, we always welcome questions and comments for the group with problems, suggestions, innovations and other input from the group. Come join us, won’t you?
