Confession time …. I love gadgets, new tech toys, buttons to push and touch screens to test. For me, I’m happy to jump right in and give new technology a try. However, this is not the case for everyone, (my experience comes from libraries, this of course may differ in other areas) some show a reluctance to try new technology.
My question is, as new information professionals do we lead the way and self-educate and encourage our work places to embrace tech tools and new developments that arise.
My own response to this is that absolutely it is our responsibility to be abreast of new tech tools which may enrich both our customers experience (speaking libraries here, but applicable elsewhere too) and for our own professional development and well, for me the fun of it.
