What technology skills should Library staff have?

From the blog of the iLibrarian; "The LibrarianinBlack, Sarah Houghton-Jan writes for the ALA’s Learning Round Table about Technology Skills Library Staff Should Have. She suggests basic technology competencies that librarians should possess"


Sarah divides these skills into the following categories:

  • Terminology
  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Security and Privacy
  • Public Computing
  • Ergonomics
  • Library web presence
  • Troubleshooting
  • Personal Skills

Looking at the list I fall down in a couple of categories, how do you do?
