In class this morning, my professor said a lot of people expect young graduates to know about technology. We have to know how to fix problems with computers and network connections.
Want to know the truth? I am not tech-savvy. I know how to use basic computer processes, but when it comes to building my own computer and fixing malfuntions on a compuer, I’ll be the first person to ask the IT department for help.
Because we are being trained in new ideas of librarianship, I think most people assume we know everything about library science and information technology. I’m sure there are some people who know these skills, but most young graduates know basic website design, social media and can fix minor computer problems.
Though I may not know how to fix a virus on a computer, I know how to find someone who can.
