Philadelphia SLA’s Tech-Topics Series

Straight from my inbox:


The TechTopics Series will be comprised of three evening workshops concentrating on new technologies and tools, and are designed for anyone who is interested in keeping their skill sets up-to-date.

These "hands-on" workshops will provide you with an overview of new technologies such as wikis, blogs and other online office applications, and show you how to apply these key learnings to your organization!

These evening sessions are specifically designed for the busy information professional. For a nominal registration fee of $15.00 ($25.00 for non-members), you will receive interactive training in an open-learning setting designed to answer your questions on how to apply these best practices to your own work environment! Food and refreshments are included!

All workshops will be held in the evening in Room 116 at the Korman Computing Center on the campus of Drexel University, in Philadelphia, PA. If you are unable to attend in person, please bear in mind we plan to deliver these sessions via web-based simulcast as well!!!
