CARL IT IG: ReBoot, ReFormat…
The primary objective of the CARL IT interest group is to create a space where library colleagues may interact and exchange ideas on the uses of technology. To achieve this outcome, the steering committee has sought to engage membership by offering a variety of virtualized social gathering spots. Each gathering spot aimed to draw an audience by creating a common set of topics for discussion and sharing of knowledge. To date, the committee has been most successful in doing so through a webinar series known as CARL IT On Air. On Air brings together technology leaders throughout California to share their knowledge with others, hopefully helping other participants formulate their own projects and services. Informally sharing IT related projects allows IG members to connect with others, gather feedback, and share important information faster than traditional publishing mechanisms.
