NYLA Institute – WiFi for Your Library

via NYLINE Listserv

The New York Library Association is pleased to announce the next offering in the NYLA Institute series:

Wireless Internet Access in Your Library

A growing number of medium and small public libraries in New York State have found the wireless solution that is right for them, enhancing both their services and technology infrastructure. What’s the right solution for your library? Learn how to assess your site and your service needs.

Learn about equipment, technical support issues, network security, and costs. Hear the specifics about several solutions for wireless, from build-it-yourself to vendor-provided. Ample time will be provided for a question & answer period. This workshop is appropriate for public library staff, managers, trustees, and anyone interested in wireless networks.


  • David Fulton, Computer Literacy Librarian at Liverpool Public Library (Liverpool NY), provides staff and patron training on computer-related topics.
  • Geoffrey Kirkpatrick, Head of Computer and Media Services at Bethlehem Public Library (Delmar NY), manages IT support and explores appropriate uses for new technologies in libraries.
  • John Love, Technology Specialist at Bethlehem Public Library (Delmar NY), is the system administrator for the library’s wired and wireless networks.

This full day workshop is $85 for NYLA members and $120 for non-members.
