Library Technology Challenges: Woes and Wows
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Pacific
Technology has been a driving force in librarianship since the construction of the first library. The last few decades have seen more change than ever before. LIRT’s Technology Learning and Teaching Committee hosts this discussion on technological challenges in librarianship in a variety of areas. Instruction librarians face a number of challenges including staying abreast of the next new idea while continuing to engage users. Opportunities to discuss trends such as digital badges, ebooks, data management strategies and collaboration with IT professionals provide an open venue for librarians of all types to share information and experiences.
