Are you tired of spending time figuring out how to maintain or support your public computers?
Do you wish you could ask someone how they manage public computers at their library? (For example, how do they manage printing? Reservations? Questions from laptop users? And more…)
Are you interested in sharing how your library gets things done?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in luck: the MaintainIT Project is here to help!
At the MaintainIT Project, they interview hundreds of librarians about how they maintain, support, and sustain their public computers. MaintainIT is then publishes all of these experiences, successes, and challenges in free guides called Cookbooks, so librarians can learn from the experiences of others who’ve done it before them.
The best part? Everything the MaintainIT Project does is free, and everything is on http://www.maintainitproject.org. They also produce free webinars, and are inviting Floridians to a free webinar on how you can use MaintainIT resources to make a difference in your library. Please come!
