“Technology Training in Libraries”

Sarah Houghton-Jan – known as the Librarian in Black — has penned what looks like a very helpful book — Technology Training in Libraries. From her blog:

Technology Training in Libraries covers technology training for libraries…with an approach that works for both staff and customers.  I cover different types of tech training: how to create a basic technology training program, technology petting zoos, peer training, lunchtime brown bags, online learning, and face-to-face learning.  I talk about documentation, class websites, marketing, and success measures.  I cover tips for trainers too: organizing courses, creating class materials, pacing classes, engaging difficult learners, and working with library management and unions.  I also include a humongous list of recommended resources on anything and everything related to tech training — from tutorials to sample lesson plans, from how-to videos to sample library tech competencies lists.

Sounds like a very practical book and well worth purchasing! $55 from Neal-Schuman.
