Short Session Description (one line):

In this session, you will learn what current e-trends are, why they demand changes in library management and how you can manage the changes instead of letting the changes manage you.

 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

There are many challenges to managing libraries in today’s digitized and networked world. E-Trends are complicating the traditional library management functions of planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling. So what’s a library manager to do? While it is difficult enough to keep up with the lingo, i.e. clouds, digital content;  the more difficult challenge lies with handling  issues such as changes in societal expectations about  formats and delivery of  information.  The results of this megatrends-style analysis of popular media, library statistics, job descriptions, and the LIS research will help you form a realistic picture of current e-trends. You will leave the session with strategies for managing the changes resulting from e-trends.
