Libraries the Intersection of Technology & Innovation
As library workers we are very proud (and rightly so) about the successful ways in which we have adapted to changing times and technologies. Of course, we can’t rest on our laurels. It’s said too often that change is the new normal. That’s because it’s true. If it is the new normal, let’s explore some scenarios underpinning even greater change in the coming years. Is the traditional web dying? Yes. Are some of our favorite formats ending? Yes – DVD, CD, MP3, eBooks, and more. What about apps? Nope, they’re dying quickly. How should our organizations be structured, led, and managed to build capacity for faster, more adaptive success? What will our future work look like? What is the future of digital? What is the future of physical?
Stephen will explore theses questions and more in this opening session to start off our virtual conference conversations.
