Updates from the Technology in University Libraries Committee

ULS’s first entirely virtual committee, Technology in University Libraries (TULS), had a great inaugural year last year and has done some great work this year, too. We’re interested in getting the word out about the committee’s goals, programs, and services.

TULS’s charge is “to explore the uses of technology in university libraries in areas such as instruction, reference, and outreach, and to offer selective guidance and information to aid university librarians in employing new technologies.” To that end, the committee has developed several initiatives that we continue to build upon. We hope you’ll take a look and utilize these programs and services.

Facebook Page and Twitter Feed:Follow us to keep up with interesting news and trends related to technology in university libraries, and engage in conversations with your colleagues. Both of these outlets are very active and a great way to stay abreast of what’s going on in the field.

– TULS Post-conference Lightning Round Webinars: Keep your ears to the ground for free lightning round webinars following various conferences. TULS invites conference attendees to share what they felt with the most interesting or innovative trends at a conference recently attended. Last year, TULS did post-conference webinars for ALA Midwinter and ACRL, and this Fall we offered a post-conference webinar for Internet Librarian. More are in the pipeline!

Thanks for making use of and contributing to these services! If you have questions, feel free to contact the TULS co-chairs, Emily Daly (emily.daly@duke.edu) or Laura Gariepy (lwgariepy@vcu.edu).
