Technology Awareness

Technology Services from the GMR

Technology classes: While our classes are always offered as face-to-face sessions, we also offer technology classes online through Adobe Connect. Learn about blogging, podcasting, wikis, social netoworking and social bookmarking. If you can't attend the "live" sessions, you can watch a recording. Click here to see a complete list of classes we offer.

New: The GMR is pleased to present its Tech Talks Series, a semi-monthly webinar devoted to technology awareness and training. Current and upcoming topics will be listed on the course webpage.

Consultation: The GMR offers consultation and assistance to our members. Some examples of what we can help with:

  • Explaning emerging technologies and how they may fit in with your library
  • Web 2.0 technologies, such as wikis, blogs, and social networking
  • Videoconferencing and computer-based voice over IP services, such as Skype
  • Podcasting, screencasting, videocasting, or video broadcasting

Do you have technology in your organization that is in need of replacement? Do you have a project that requires you to update or acquire new technology? Apply for a Technology Improvement Award! For some ideas on projects - look at some of the past awards we have funded.
