RILINK Summer Conference 2020

Standard Bearer: Library to Classroom

A Special Invitation for Superintendents

RILINK and Follett School Solutions invite all Rhode Island superintendents and/or their designees to the Follett Resource Manager session on July 16 from 9:00- 10:00 AM. This product "streamlines inventory processes and ensures you are able to buy what you need, share what you have, and re-purpose what remains." Keep track of anything and everything - Chromebooks, textbooks, band instruments, sports uniforms, other technology, and eContent. Time for Q & A is also provided.

Presenters for the session are Christie Gildart, Follett Destiny Technology Sales Consultant, New England Area and Kimberly Hering-Mueller, Technical Consultant, Follett School Solutions Group.
