  • Keeping Up with New Information Technologies


  • One of the most difficult jobs for any information professional is trying to keep up with changes in technology. Just as soon as you think you know how to apply something new in your organization, it's been replaced by something else. Change is constant and the amount of available information is astounding. The good news is that there are some simple strategies you can use to stay up-to-date on the latest innovations without being completely overwhelmed. Many thanks to Steven Bell for his very helpful article "To Keep Up, Go Beyond", which is cited in the bibliography. The tips for avoiding information overload come directly from there as does the inspiration for the title of this guide. Thanks also to Marylaine Block for her tips on staying current, as well as to the people who sent her their methods for staying conversant with technological changes. The sources listed in this guide are the ones used by the WMRC librarians.
