Updated Version of Getting the Most from Word

Infopeople is now offering new sessions of its popular workshop Getting the Most from Microsft Word!

Microsoft Word is one of the most versatile software programs available today. It can be used as a word processor, drawing program, spreadsheet, HTML editor and desktop publisher. Since Microsoft Word is becoming a de facto standard for creating documents from one-page handouts to multi-chapter books, this is probably the one piece of software that library staff will use most for communicating with others in print.


RFID and Libraries

I've recently completed some work on RFID, the result of which will be a chapter in Rosenberg and Garfinkel's Wireless Privacy: RFID, Bluetooth, 802.11 (title may change by publication date in early 2005 by Addison-Wesley/Prentice Hall.
My work will be a chapter on RFID and.....libraries (surprise!). Below is a summary of my conclusions (excerpted from the aforementioned chapter) about library implementations of RFID as of today:


New Workshop on Effective Change Management

Change is important to the survival and success of any library. Although we cannot eliminate the stress and upheaval of organizational change, we can lessen its impact and take best advantage of the opportunities change offers. Handling change effectively can make your library stronger and more resilient. Effectively driving, sponsoring and supporting change is part of every library manager's role.

Advisory Board Changes

There are a number of changes in the membership of the Infopeople Advisory Board. The Board provides crucial guidance and advice on the training and technology needs of California libraries, and helps to keep Infopeople firmly in touch with its user base. We greatly appreciate the service of the three outgoing Board members. Susan Hildreth had to step down when she left the San Francisco Public Library. Joan Bartel retired from LAPL and, therefore, from the Board. Susan Rawlins, of Colusa County, has left the Board for personal reasons. We will miss all three.


RFID Survey

Infopeople and the IT section of CLA have cooperatively developed an online survey designed to collect information about RFID in California libraries. Survey results will be posted on the Infopeople and CLA websites and will be used in an upcoming Infopeople webcast on RFID. We would like to have a response from as many California libraries as possible, so we are asking libraries to take the survey whether or not they use or are planning to use RFID technology.
