A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, November 1, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Join Jason Griffey for a survey of the current state of consumer and emerging technology that libraries and librarians can use. Prepare for coming services, raise your awareness of technology trends and issues, and get a head start on strategies for the next 5 years of technology change. Discussion will be focused on how technology like Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and decentralization will drive new and interesting services for your patrons and how to think about investments to prepare your library for the future.

By participating in this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Strategies for deciding which technologies to invest in
  • How to think about emerging technologies in terms of patron privacy issues
  • Likely directions for technology and service changes in the next 5 years
