School of Library and Information Science

The 2012 OLC Chapter Conferences will once again feature the “Gadget Gallery.” The OLC Audio-Visual Division and Information Technology Division Action Councils will team up to give conference attendees hands-on experience with and knowledge about the ever-changing equipment in today’s electronic and digital world, and prepare library staff members to meet the needs of patrons who are requesting technical assistance.

Citizens throughout the state continue to turn to Ohio’s public libraries and their staffs for technical assistance with e-book readers, MP3 players, portable computing devices, and other types of new and constantly-changing electronic equipment. However, few library staff members have any formal training on how to use this equipment. And, unless individual library staff members have personal experience using the equipment, they are not prepared to respond to their patrons’ needs.

Some of the equipment featured in the 2012 “Gadget Gallery” includes: n Gateway Netbook n Apple iPad2 (16GB) n Samsung Tab 10.1

n Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch n Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet n Sony Reader – PRS-T1

n Amazon Kindle

n Amazon Kindle Fire n Kobo Wi-Fi

Members of the OLC’s AV and IT Divisions will give conference attendees a chance to learn about these various devices. The equipment will be available to touch and use, and members of the divisions will be on hand to instruct the attendees on the equipments’ uses and applications.

The equipment being demonstrated in the “Gadget Gallery” was purchased through a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.

Stop by after registration, between sessions, and before or after lunch.
