January 13th Meeting - Web Conferencing
The next meeting of the CJRLC Technology Group will take place on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 at the CJRLC Offices in Freehold from 3:00 to 4:30 PM.
Remote communication and productivity tools are growing in popularity. Web conferencing is used for online meetings and presentations and allows for travel costs to be substantially reduced when it is not necessary for people to collaborate in one particular geographic location. At our meeting we will look at web conferencing and collaboration service tools such as Webex and others. To illustrate the value of web conferencing, we will conduct this meeting both live at the CJRLC offices and virtually via web conference (the live portion starts at 3:00 pm and the virtual part begins at 4:00 pm). If you are planning to come to the meeting in person, just show up. If you are going to participate virtually via web conferencing, please pre-register by e-mailing Amy Kearns by Monday, January 12th at 2:00 pm at the latest. You will be e-mailed logon information in advance of the meeting. Please note that there are a limited number of virtual seats available - first come, first serve. The virtual meeting will last about 30 minutes.
As always, CJRLC Technology Group meetings are free and open to all attendees. Please bring your new tech ideas, discoveries and tips to share with other group members in the New Technology Roundtable section of the meeting! Don’t forget to bring your business cards for use in networking with other tech (and non-tech) librarians from around the region! Feel free to bring your own handheld devices to use and show off during the meeting! At our last meeting we got to see quite a few new model cell phones, high capacity flash drives and other wireless gadgets!
Directions to the CJRLC Offices can be found here. Hope to see you at the meeting on January 13th!
