Presenting “Digital Preparedness: What You Need to Know”

I will be presenting a three-hour workshop session at the Montana State Library Fall Workshop. I am excited to take this session, entitled “Digital Preparedness: What You Need to Know” to one of my favorite groups of librarians!

Here is the session description:

As librarians we are often expected to know everything (or at least quite a lot) about the tools and technologies that we encounter. In order to build that knowledge we need a strong understanding of how those technologies work and fit together. In this session we will discuss digital preparedness and will cover the basics of what you need to know to help your users on a day-to-day basis. This includes: how to name, organize, and manage files; how to create and manage computer backups and storage; how to manage email; how to handle social media and privacy; and what happens to all of your digital “stuff” after death. This session will show examples, step-by-step instructions, and tools for participants to explore more on their own.

Learning Objective: Learn critical tools and concepts related to digital literacy and be ready to apply what is learned on the job in Montana libraries.
