The one sure thing about technology is that it changes constantly, often leading library workers experiencing anxiety, frustration, and “tech burnout” as we struggle to stay abreast of the latest updates impacting our colleagues and patrons. Now, the uncertainty and changes brought by the Coronavirus pandemic have caused these issues to multiply.
This session tackles the difficulties library workers often face as we deal with the pressures of system updates, device upgrades, learning new technologies, and dealing with information overload. We will discuss strategies for keeping up, staying confident, and guiding others through the ups and downs of constant change and new technology challenges.
