Like most of us who pay even a little attention to recent developments in technology, you’re likely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information and progress. With so much coming at us so fast, keeping up can be a challenge. Do some technologies deserve more attention than others?
Join Laura Solomon as she explores what’s coming down the pike and what it might mean (or not) for libraries. We can’t track everything, but we can pick out some patterns in what’s happening around us.
- Be familiar with 3 or more emerging technology trends in 4 different categories
- Be aware of how some emerging technologies may affect libraries
- Learn some specific areas of emerging technology that libraries should likely focus their efforts on
