We are pleased to announce that the next Annual Meeting of the Northern California Technical Processes Group (NCTPG) will take place in San Francisco late April/early May 2017.
This year will be our 80th and NCTPG wants to mark the past, present, and future of technical services by examining what it takes to navigate the evolution of our work. Technology changes but the need to manage change does not.
What changes have you experienced? How did you manage the technological and interpersonal challenges? If you have a topic that you believe fits our 2017 theme of managing change, we’d love to hear about it. Presentations are usually 20-30 minutes with additional participation in a panel discussion.
Please submit your proposal to the NCTPG steering committee with the subject “2017 Call for Presentations” at email@example.com.
Possible topics include:
- the hard and soft skills necessary to manage change and expectations
- the changing roles of librarians and technical services
- systems migrations
- preparing LIS students, employees, and systems for future changes, like Linked Data
