Communicating with Techies & Non-Techies

"I say tomayto, you say tomahto..."

Faithful followers of content on the MaintainIT site may have noticed a shiny new chapter now available on the Cookbooks page. It's a sneak peek at the forthcoming Cookbook - a chapter on Communicating with Techies and Non-Techies. And it's here just in time to complement the 30-minute webinar they are hosting at WebJunction.

Wednesday, August 13th at 2pm Ross Callender from the Colorado Library Consortium (CLiC) will be MaintainIT's special guest. He will share tips and suggestions for communication based on his experiences explaining technological topics to hundreds of librarians over his career. Connection information for the webinar is available on the WebJunction site.

Can't make it on Wednesday? This program will be archived and available for viewing at your convenience. Check out some of the previous 30-minute webinars by going to the webinar archives page.

And plan to come back on August 26th for the Cookbook Book Club when they talk about Avoiding Wireless Networking Problems (Read Chapter 2 of "Recipes for a 5-Star Library")

MaintainIT hosts several webinars each month. Check their monthly newsletter AND the web site - http://www.maintainitproject.org/cookbooks
