Start a Tech Lab in the Reference Room:
We have a little extra corner of space in the Reference Department near our existing bank of computers, and we'd like to fill that in with some new hardware and software to be able to provide patrons access to some creative digital tools. Hopefully, our own staff and Duxbury community members will have expertise with these products that will enable us to provide classes.
Pie in the sky, here is what we would like to purchase and provide:
- laptops (maybe 6)
- color printer
- Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, Light Room, Muse, Acrobat XI Pro, etc)
- White Board or Smart Board
Although starting a Tech Lab would take some initial overhead, we think patrons will be interested in using these services. At the moment we are going to use what we already have in the library with the hope that it will grow in the future. What so you think?
We have many other ideas that I look forward to sharing!
