The last two days, I have been attending technology training sessions. The first was for a new library circulation software program called Insignia. My main adjustment has been becoming accustom to the teeny tiny font size. The are many positives to the software already. Cataloging will certainly be much easier and I won't waste as many barcode labels as I had to with the old Athena program. I had a few minutes this morning to explore the new system and practice checking out materials.
This afternoon, I attended a Teradon system training. This is the set up our school uses to broadcast video and images to our classrooms. We can download media for future use and encode data from one medium to another. I will explore this system a little more in depth when I return to my office tomorrow.
