Short Session Description (one line):
Professors and librarians seeking to convene groups of their constituents might give some thought to establishing a strong bond that doesn’t begin and end with the hot technology of the day but something deeper and more meaningful: an understanding of our common purpose.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
This session explores the impact of emerging technologies on library and information center missions and goals. Understanding the importance of connection and community building is just as important as knowledge of the day's hot technologies. How do we find a balance between the two? What guiding principles should be in place?
