Michael Hayward gave a presentation on Schlow Library’s Card Management App at the March session of ILEAD USA. Access a recording to learn how your library can also develop one!
Michael started working at Schlow Library as a volunteer, where he was eventually hired to a part-time position that he began automating using macros. When the opportunity arose for a full-time position in Schlow’s IT Services department, he applied and accepted based on his co-worker’s encouragement.
In his current position, Michael strives to create new and interesting technology to meet the needs of his co-workers and the patrons of Schlow Library. Some notable projects include “My Library Card”, an Android/iPhone App that holds all the Schlow library cards for a family, or the redesign of Schlow’s notices to improve communication and create opportunities for promotion
