the future of libraries in the digital age
Join the free, online global conversation about #librariesofthefuture #Library2016 #libchat #tlchat #library library20.com
The date is set for the third of three Library 2.016 online mini-conferences: "Library as Classroom," October 6th, 2016, from 12:00 - 3:00pm US-Pacific Time.
As libraries shape their futures – and adapt to the future needs of their communities – what are the near- and long-term trends that point to our brightest opportunities. What can we learn from library innovators and innovators from other sectors and industries that will help us shape the future we want and that our communities aspire towards?
Explore with us some of the key trends that point toward specific futures for libraries, and engage in conversations with civic, social, and education innovators to learn more about what they think about the future, and how libraries can become an integral part of their future visions. Libraries and librarians are well-positioned to envision the future – at the intersection of information, education, technology, and community – and this dialogue will help bring our best thinking together with the exciting visions of our collaborators, allies, and partners. Sponsored with ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries.
