Three more years (at least) of TechAtlas!

December 22, 2006

We here at WebJunction are just a tiny little part of OCLC, the global library services cooperative headquartered in Ohio. We work together with OCLC’s core staff on many activities, not limited to such things as administration, finance, human resources, payroll, etc.

Every once in a while there are more interesting angles to the relationship, such as the recent signing of a new grant agreement between OCLC and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This grant to OCLC and to WebJunction provides for three more years of work around the TechAtlas software, following up on work that WebJunction has been doing over the past two years.

We’ll be posting lots of additional information about this new grant in the near future, but the good news for TechAtlas users is that use of the tool will remain free for all WebJunction members for at least a few more years. To learn more about WebJunction’s work with TechAtlas, visit our TechAtlas content area.


TechAtlas in Kansas!

December 18, 2006

We were pleased to be invited to make a presentation earlier this month for a group of librarians in Kansas participating in WebJunction’s Rural Library Sustainability program. The presentation was conducted as a webcast, and Cindi Hickey from the State Library of Kansas was kind enough to record and archive the session. If you’re interested in getting an overview of TechAtlas, this recording is a great place to start!  Please note that you will need to use the Internet Explorer web browser in order to view this archived recording.
