How Lib Tech Saved My Life

lib tech

A few years ago, I got a job with the American Library Association. I had to be available for a meeting that was scheduled for the afternoon. I was a little nervous, but my nerves were not the ones I had been dealing with. The meeting was to discuss our new eBook, Lib Tech, and what it could do for us and our members. It was a big meeting and everyone wanted to share their stories, so I was nervous when I arrived.

It was the middle of the afternoon, I had been at the library for about an hour and was still nervous. I entered the room and found myself in a room full of people on a stage. They were all wearing some kind of t-shirt with the American Library Association logo. They had a microphone and a few people were holding up various Lib Tech resources. I knew I wanted to do this, so I grabbed the microphone and started talking.

LibTech is a fairly new idea:

It is a way for people to help library users with technology issues. The concept’s roots are in Free Software and the “Libre” movement. But LibTech is a way of using free software (or at least, the software that they can make open source) to address tech issues. The goal of LibTech is to encourage people to help each other out in the library. And also to make the library a more inclusive and welcoming place.

LibTech is a really good idea. I’ve been using it for months now and it has made a huge difference for me. I’ve been a library user for years now and I always felt like I had few options about where to go to get help. Now that I’m using LibTech I feel like I have more options and I can always get help when I need it.

Now that we have lib tech, I can go to the library almost whenever I want and talk to the librarian I see. I can actually get help from the librarian that I see.

Libtech is a “solution” to the online library crisis we all have. In the past, if you wanted help, you would have to go to a library, call the librarian, and ask for help. But with lib tech you can get help instantly and from anyone with your library card, simply by telling them what you need help with. And yes, there’s also a separate library for people with disabilities (I think).

Lib techs are a great way to help people who do not have access to a library. The library will automatically pick up your request. It will provide you with a firm that you can fill out and send off to your local library. The librarian will then email you a form that will be sent to your local library. In the meantime, there is a form that you can fill out that will be sent to your local library.
