Evolving Technologies in Libraries with Laura Solomon — 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.
Laura Solomon, MLS, is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and a W3C-certified front-end web developer. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She specializes in developing with Drupal. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
More information on breakout sessions will be added later.
