Praise for Technet 2010 from the conference evaluations:

The info was from beginner status and up -- thanks! Technology is not nearly so frightening when approached from a non-threatening, "we're all in this together" manner. :)

The tech petting zoo is a great thing that introduces me to software and hardware my library would never be able to afford.

Learning about coming technology is always a heads up direction-wise. It also filled in some gaps where I was short on current info.

Carolyn is an awesome instructor!!!

For most of the sessions, it was hard choosing just one to attend--there were so many that sounded interesting.

You could tell that people really cared about what they were doing and sharing with others. NTRLS does a great job providing wonderful programs for its member libraries.
