December SirsiDynix Institute

And here’s the December SirsiDynix Institute. Registration is open now.
From Libraries to Lifebraries
Date: Dec 09, 2009
Start Time: 1 p.m. Eastern
Length: 1 hour
As libraries continue to evolve to meet customers’ needs in a rapidly changing culture, the concern over the future of print and the “book” remains core to their existence. However, in looking at current trends, there is evidence to suggest otherwise. The future of libraries may not be dependent on the creation or evolution of new service delivery models based upon the book, it may actually reside in something more “deeply local.” Join Helene Blowers in a lively conversation about “new life” opportunities for libraries. As old formats and service models decline, there’s a new phoenix rising from the shadows.
