  • Learn what to look for and for red flags that can cause issues down the road.

  • Hear real words of wisdom, from current library IT managers.

When it comes time to hire your library's next IT person, you'll be better prepared!

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will able to:

  • Identify at least three criteria to use when evaluating potential IT hires.
  • Identify at least one warning sign of a poor potential hire
