Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ideally, librarians should know at least as much about social technologies as their constituents; thus, it has become mission critical for libraries to provide staff training programs in these areas. Budget restraints, creating the time, and staff resistance, however, can impede the effort. Houghton-Jan (digital futures manager, San Jose P.L.) presents innovative ways to offer training even under challenging circumstances. Highlights include five steps to calculating return on investment (ROI); an essential list of training topics; development plans based on current vs. desired competencies; instructional ideas (including a technology petting zoo ); online training options; and dealing with motivational issues and reluctant learners. This should prove an essential resource for librarians responsible for implementing training and employee development programs. [Houghton-Jan is a 2009 LJ Mover & Shaker.]" --Library Journal, June 2010

"Houghton-Jan…offers a guide to help all types of libraries implement low-cost, comprehensive, and effective programs for staff to learn new technology skills." --SciTech Book News, June 2010

No other work combines staff development with technology training in an easy-to-digest format tailored to library staff at all levels. - --Maurice Coleman, Technology Trainer, Harford County Public Library

"Technology Training in Libraries is a crisp, cleanly practical manual whose focus is on being realistic and simple but still effective. The focus is on how to implement a program that fits in with an institution's mission, how to determine staff needs, and how to meet patron needs, making this an essential resource for all libraries." --Reference & User Services Quarterly, Winter 2010
