When you don't have a team of technologists or research programmers, how do you stay at the cutting edge of technology? Building a library lab (whether virtual or physical) with your library's patrons as assistants leverages them to learn new technology and influence technology adoption at the library. This program will show the process of designing a library lab and get participants started on building their own.

Thank you to everyone who attended our presentation! I've attached the slides, just be aware that the notes contain most of the content. Feel free to contact us with any questions or if you'd like to see some of the additional documentation we discussed (rubric, worksheet, etc). And let us know what you're doing with your own library lab!
