This is the series to acquire and share in any institution over the next year. I think of it as a
cost-effective way to attend the equivalent of ten excellent technology management courses led
by a dream faculty! TECH SET ® #11–20 will help librarians stay relevant, thrive, and survive. It is
a must-read for all library leaders and planners.
