  • Description

Will a technology plan help your library? How often should it be updated? What should it's components be? Should it relate to other planning activities and documents? How can you be sure your plan meets Federal e-rate requirements? What's the best way to asses your technology needs and gather data to create a cohesive plan? Here, in one volume is everything librarians need to know to create, implement, update, evaluate, and use a detailed technology plan. The guide describes how plans are developed, how to maintain them, and how to use them as leverage for grant and budget applications. The accompanying CD-ROM contains some 50 technology plans developed in public, school, academic, and special libraries from which users can cut-and-paste appropriate selections to create, adapt, or enhance their own technology plans. The CD-ROM was prepared in an HTML format and can be used with both IBM and Macintosh computers.
