Linda Keefe and Deb Davis have published Tech-Talk for over 23 years, reaching librarians of all types and educational support organizations across the nation. Their introduction to the library industry began in 1996 at the Brooklyn Public Library where they created the Technology Advocate program, training 120 staff in 60 branches, reducing the IT Help Desk average response time of tech reps from 17 days to 3 days, within the first three weeks of the six-week training. Deb has a BS in Human Environmental Science, with a minor in Business. Linda has a BS in Education and an MBA in International Marketing.
As technology communicators, they blend essential workplace skills (Office Suite, Internet, and Interpersonal Communications) into articles, videos, and database activities that allow you to be life-long learners, developing innovative ways of working independently and with colleagues.
