Modern archives depend on technology, but managing the IT aspects have become a growing challenge for all of us, whether it's working successfully with others (such as campus IT departments, vendors and others), handling tech needs on our own, or making strategic technology decisions with confidence. Although technology is ever-changing, there are some management fundamentals that remain the same in a world of churn.
Based on the instructor's curriculum created for the American Library Association's Certified Public Administrator's Program and the You Can Do I.T. Technology Academy from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, this class is aimed to equip learners with practical frameworks and solutions. Participants in this learning pilot will be surveyed prior to class to discover their greatest areas of technology management struggles and the class content will be tailored to meet the needs of participants.

- Increase your understanding of fundamental technology management approaches that remain constant in an ever-changing world.

- Learn about other topics customized to their greatest needs based on a pre-class survey
