Top Technology Trends
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific
LITA's Top Technology Trends session at Midwinter 2013 in Seattle will both return to its roots and take a new tack. As LITA's premier program on changes and advances in technology, the roundtable discussion will return to its original Midwinter form of a more informal discussion amongst library technology experts and thought leaders. The new tack will be to focus on a single broad area of current interest or concern to the library technology community.
The topic for Midwinter 2013 will be "If Data I Created Resides in a Cloud Environment, Is it Still Mine?". Lead by educator and librarian Carl Grant, of CARE Affiliates, a small group of library thought leaders will discuss the issues and ramifications of storing and mixing library created data with vendor-provided or licensed data in a cloud based or hosted environment.
