    Emerging Tech Trends for Libraries

    Technology has changed the face of libraries, and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to customers. This workshop introduces emerging technology trends, and how those trends are reshaping library services. Examples of how to incorporate these emerging trends into libraries are provided.

    Attendees will leave knowing what trends to look for, the difference between a technology trend and a fad, and will have ideas on how their library can respond to emerging technology.

    David Lee King speaks widely at national and regional conferences.  His focus is relevant to public, school and academic libraries. 

     

    Afternoon Work Sessions

    The afternoon sessions of the pre-conference will function as a summit where libraries of all types from across the state can meet and work through policy issues related to cross-system collaboration and cooperation. Maine InfoNet will lead a discussion of some issues that have arisen over the last few years with the goal of reaching understanding and a shared approach for solving some problems that we all encounter. There will be a chance for libraries to provide input on proposed policies and suggested best-practices as well as an opportunity to raise issues of importance to your library that might impact statewide sharing.
