Training in the cloud

Training in the cloud, or mobile labs
Delores Rondinella (Technology Training Coordinator, Stark County District Library) talks about how far her library has come, from clunky old equipment to a new training program. Had to create a master plan for curriculum development for the library.  Began with the basics.  Added equipment as need arose. Gave equipment dual purpose.  Each year purchased a new piece of equipment.  Used refurbished equipment if possible.  Developed a maintenance schedule. Maintenance must become a priority.
