City of Sydney: Moving from Low-Tech to a High-Tech Library

Jeffery Cruz (Manager Library Network) and Grace Lam (Manager Library Support Services) will deliver a practical workshop on how a Capital City Library is building a high-tech library service from the ground up.

Through a presentation of our technology journey to hands-on examples and activities, you will understand how your own library service can break through funding, staffing, and Council barriers to create a technology-focused future.

This workshop will provide documented examples of grant applications, initiation briefs, and business cases as well as providing an indicative checklist of steps to take to make them successful.
