Wired for the Future

To ensure that technology is used correctly as a tool to meet library objectives, librarians must find the delicate balance between over-dependence and appropriate use. For public libraries with limited budgets and smaller staffs, planning how and where technology is used in the library is imperative.

A technology plan provides a blueprint against which to measure new technologies and applications, assess future needs, and allocate resources. To help meet the challenge of using technology effectively, the Public Library Association (PLA) offers a comprehensive and practical guide to preparing a plan.

Authors Nelson and Mayo provide necessary tools to determine needs and identify options, select a technology infrastructure, and implement the plan. Reproducible workforms enable librarians to customize key steps to specific situations. "Technotes" describe various technologies and applications available to libraries.
