Welcome to the SUNYLA Technology Discussion Group (TDG)! This group has had several incarnations: Technology Users Group (TUG), Library Software Users Group (LiSUG), and SUNY Aleph Users Group (SUNYAUG). The current committee is an informal discussion group with the following goals:
- Serve as a focus for the exchange of information about various library technologies including but not limited to automation, information technology, web services, user experience, etc.
- Encourage discussion and education within and between interest groups of SUNY librarians and staff
- Maintain lines of communication with the SUNY Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS)
- Provide an informal space to talk technology issues that matter to SUNY librarians
- Organize the annual mid-winter SUNYLA virtual conference
