Round Table: Opportunities and Challenges of circulating non-book material and new technologies. 

Date: Nov 20th, 2009 9-12pm in Alliance conference room


If you circulate technologies at your library, or would like to hear from others who do, sign up for this round table and bring your experience, questions and tips to share with your colleagues from other Prospector and Alliance libraries.


Materials include but are not limited to digital cameras, lap-tops, transcription machines, the Kindle, portable DVD players, etc.   


Some questions we might have are:


What type of equipment are you circulating?

What are the loan rules (who can checkout and for how long)?

What are the replacement costs?

What are the checkout/checkin procedures (does someone do a quality control check)?

What software do you support and assist with at the reference or other service desk?

How does this equipment affect instruction?

Hidden costs?


Bonus round: Q&A Triple I loan/circulation module discussion.  Best practices?
