Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Computer Networking for Librarians”, on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
Your computer network silently keeps your library running every day, but how much do you really know about it? Join Chris as he talks about how the network functions and the basic components that make it tick. We’ll review routers, switches, firewalls, and how everything works together, plus some tips on what to do if there’s a problem. Presented in a fun, accessible format, this session is introductory-level, and perfect for beginners.
Presenter: Chris Brown is assistant library director at the Pella (IA) Public Library. Chris has worked for more than eight years in public libraries as an IT professional, including managing the IT for a seven-branch library system. He recently completed work on the book Crash Course in Technology Planning, available now from Libraries Unlimited.
