NCompass Live: Benchmarks and Funding for Library Technology - Recorded Online Session 

This week we have two speakers from our recent Technology Planning Summer Camp to share their presentations from the event held in August.

Mary Jo Ryan, NLC Communications Coordinator, will give an introduction to the unprecedented national coalition that has formed to design and pilot a series of public access technology benchmarks for public libraries. The coalition will develop guidelines that define quality technology services at libraries and how to continuously improve them to motivate local re-investment in public technology access at libraries. Then Richard Miller, NLC Library Development Director, will discuss the importance of local fund raising for keeping technology as up-to-date as possible, and how that can be achieved with the establishment of a sinking fund.
