Thank You Rita
We want to thank Rita Gavelis for working with the New England Region as our Technology Instructor this winter. Rita was enlisted to provide educational opportunities to Network members on technology-related topics. Rita posted articles on avoiding spam, Twitter and Hospitals, and cloud computing.
Rita taught 17 classes to Network members throughout the region. Rita traveled up and down the region–New Hampshire, Rhode Island, western Massachusetts–to deliver classes to state health and local health sciences library associations.
A total of 345 Network members, some from other regions, attended a technology learning session. Topics ranged from Web Collaboration, Open Source Tools, and Podcasting. Rita also presented classes on using Google utilities including Google Health. Eighteen educational sessions were conducted, offering fourteeen different classes from October 2010 through March 2011. We thank Rita for sharing her wealth of knowledge with the Region and for working with us these past six months.
While her work with NER is completed, Rita Gavelis continues offering technology based instruction to associations and institutions throughout the region.
