“One of the CLA Community-Led Library Service Network’s goals for 2014-2015 was to create a series of posts exploring aspects of community-led work, providing an opportunity to share information about the work being done in Canadian libraries and offering useful information and ideas to others in an accessible and readable format.

To date, Network members have contributed eight posts as part of our Community-Led Work in Practice: Experiences from Canadian Libraries series. Laura Young wrote about Edmonton Public Libraries’ epl2go, a mobile service providing communities with library services when access to a traditional library branch is limited. In Let the Community Lead, Andrea Cecchetto and Leah Rucchetto shared Markham Public Library’s experience using a community-led approach in developing their strategic plan. Rejuvenating library service in a rural community through community engagement was the focus of a post by Amanda Fullerton and Sara Gillis of Halifax Public Libraries.

John Pateman of Thunder Bay Public Library contributed a series of posts on developing a community led strategy, staff and service structures, systems, and service culture.

PDF versions of these posts, and a lengthy list of other community-led resources, are available on the Network website’s Resources page.”

You can buy this as a print. At 40″ by 22″ it is not a large poster, but it is an expensive one.  It costs $44.

Best Practices in Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing [July/August 2015]

 

Grasping For The Cloud

The cloud is gathering. There have been several baby steps leading up to now. ASPs (application service providers) opened the door to off-site, provided service that allowed organizations to off-board certain IT functions to a data center somewhere off site. Typically, the organization owned the licenses for the applications; the data center simply stored and maintained them and provided a grade-of-service that was usually negotiated in advance . . . .

Top Three Differences between Enterprise and Consumer Clouds

The cloud has been a boon to people and businesses that enjoy its convenience, agility and flexibility. But increasingly, corporate users are choosing the cloud applications they use without involving IT, and often without understanding the issues that can result when critical corporate information is shared through consumer cloud applications. . . .

Why KM in the Cloud May Be Right for You

Why KM in the Cloud May Be Right for You Deploying knowledge management (KM) in the cloud might be the right strategy if your organization is looking to further expand into digital services for customer engagement. It might also be the best strategy if your current system is three versions behind and you are concerned about the high upgrade costs. But, how do you know for sure? Let’s take a look at some of the business benefits of cloud KM. A few distinct advantages are unique to deploying cloud KM . . . .”
