We had a great webcast this past Wednesday previewing some of the new features to be included with the Event Tracker tool in TechAtlas version 2.3. We received great feedback from the participants, and we’ve posted some follow-up documents to the TechAtlas Online Learning Materials page on WebJunction.

TechAtlas version 2.3 is currently scheduled for release sometime in mid-November, and we’ll be holding at least one more webcast to preview new features in that release. For more information, visit the Online Learning Materials page. And thanks to everyone who participated in the webcast!


TechAtlas in the news

September 26, 2006

WebJunction recently received permission from the good folks at Information Today to post a copy of a great article from Computers in Libraries magazine. Stephanie Gerding and Pam McKellar authored a great article for the July/August edition of Computers in Libraries entitled Wishing Won’t Work: 10 Things You Need to Know and Do When Applying for Technology Grants. This is a wonderfully comprehensive article that places technology planning (and TechAtlas!) in the larger context of applying for library technology grants. Click the article title above to take a look at this great resource on WebJunction.
