Short Session Description (one line):
Emerging technologies do not have to be intimidating or out-of-reach; come learn about ways to integrate them into your library or community, no matter your level of skill or budget!
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Libraries are the epicenter of learning and discovery for communities and educational campuses alike. But too often, tight hiring or budget restrictions limit our ability to support our patrons at the rate that we want to. This is not the case with innovative and emerging technologies! Join me as we discuss ways to explore 1) free and cost-effective options for libraries looking to integrate emerging technologies into their collection, 2) opportunities to learn more about innovative and emerging technologies at every stage of library integration, and 3) potential partnerships to build relationships and support emerging technologies in your library.
